Burrator charcoal making 19th May 2012

Charcoal burning workshop at Burrator Reservoir using traditional kiln technique!

Clearing away the sand to uncover the charcoal 

Getting all the logs ready for the kiln
lifting the lid to reveal the charcoal made the night before...

Wow! Charcoal!!!

Bagging up the charcoal ready for sale

Stacking the kiln for the next charcoal burn

 Cooking some veggie stew for lunch, yum!

Chilling out on site

Nearly stacked high!! ready for the lid??!

 Whittling, ready for marshmallows :D

The big fire!! Go charcoal!!
