2552's new home is on a slope, as daft as that sounds its actually a good thing due to the shape of her hull, it means that her back end is higher as a result and as she is almost flat on the rear it means that its a better height to work on.
The draw back is that the steps no longer reach, they are about 2' too short so I have had to modify them, which is work in progress and there will be photos to follow.
The end of the hard standing that she was on is somewhat overgrown and although not really causing us too much of an issue would eventually encroach on the her so during one of my days off I decided to clear the area, the dark patch in the photo is where the leaves, compost and soil had spread:
In places it was nearly a foot deep and had blackberry roots growing through it so a real pain in the next to clear, but somewhat satisfying.
I had a couple of off cuts of scaffolding boards left over from the steps and it occurred to me that it would make a great bench as we could do with something to sit on outside her while eating our lunch or just having a chill, quite pleased with it as its just some off cuts of scaffolding boards and a piece of shuttering board:
