I always said that this would be the champagne cork-popping moment for me. Whilst I love our new biomass boiler and its building at Ickworth, the massive green elephant remaining in the newly gravelled courtyard was this. But no more. The remaining oil wasn’t wasted but used to fuel the estate tractor. So, one more down, bit by bit, the oily grip is released. Now onto building that woodchip store..

Gone!
