ODW projects progress

By Peter Coates, Head of Outdoor Work
Block 5 students have recently participated in an Outdoor Work all-in-weekend. Adam Osborne, Harry Adams and Alfie Munkenbeck finished dismantling an old Land Rover and have progressed with the re-building of the vehicle to the stage where the new engine is ready to be lowered into the frame.

Bedales Outdoor Work

Celeste Macilwaine and Patrick Lindsay made great strides with building the Victorian glass house: the frame is now complete and the leaded light windows, salvaged from Steephurst, are about to be fitted. Freddie Willatt worked at the forge moulding the new library railings. He has designed them in the arts and crafts style, in keeping with the library façade. Once complete, the much-missed wisteria will be trained along them.

Despite the snow storms and cold temperatures, the students worked extremely hard and were rewarded with a pizza supper in Petersfield.
