Allen Trencher at work -Gathurst Fold 22-03-1962.
  This machine was used to speed up the excavation of drainage work for the carriageway drainage system. Here a 6 inch dia. SGW pipe will be laid in the trench bottom. (Health & Safety Regulations??)
Does anyone remember this machine - from memory there was an accident involving a man's arm being severed by this machine during the year.
