    We found a belfast sink in the woods today, it's in great nick too. Problem is, it's got a concrete skim on some of it, and weighs a bloody ton. It's also at the bottom of a really steep incline, which is very slippy. So I'm thinking about how to get it up to the top of the woods

    Driving slowly id have thought it would survive.

    I got a similar sounding one out of a skip, about 3 feet long as it had a drainer on it and a big lump of concrete. I balanced it on the edge of the skip whilst we climbed out but it fell off onto the road - made a small chip on one edge!

    Would probably go straight through a sledge though..

    Gravity will assist.

    Getting it up again is a whole different story...

    Forget RM's van idea, she is a bit odd, let's concentrate more on this big sink. If we dragged it an foot a day, it could be here by Jesus's birthday.

    RICK, have you got any thick rope ??

    Uj have you a y rope at all ? you.ca n make up a pulley from.a loop through the plug hole and use a rope one end tied to a tree passed through the loop and pull on t'other end to haul it up t'slope.Turn sink.on its side it will have less resistance.
    I shifted one nearly a kilometre just tumbling it along on its side,took me a while but i got it where i wanted....completely.knackered me in process.
    Hebridean at heart..everywhere else is just somewhere on the way back there...
