Huge respect to Barney the delivery man who managed to negotiate a lorry the size of Bristol through a crowded Pottery car-park. He then managed to tail lift and pump truck the eleven hundred dead weight of Valentines finest right to our door. What a craftsman, man & machine in perfect harmony!
Spent a lovely and informative morning at The Old Court Hotel networking with other small tourism enterprises based in Hfds. Such passion and enthusiasm! Shout out to minxmedia, artwork creative and hopes of longtown for inspiring presentations. Great to chat with x2 Simons: one from The Three Counties Cider Shop and the other from photopia
Geophysical surveys investigate the physical properties of the ground to increase understanding of the local geology and ground. Self potential geophysical surveys measure the voltage of small, naturally produced currents that occur beneath the Earth’s surface.
The terracotta clay discs produced by Eastnor Pottery form the bases of the self potential electrodes. The porous terracotta allows the electrode solution to seep into the ground to establish a proper electrical contact between the electrode and ground. The results of the surveys can be used to find ore bodies, identify contaminant plumes or find leaks in reservoirs and dams.
