On Sunday the 12th August, about 15 people visited the peat works unannounced, finding it almost deserted and wandering around for about 15 minutes before finding any workers.

During this time, all the keys from the key safe and ignition keys for most of the machines disappeared and ended up at the bottom of drains and the engine of one of the two peat-moving trains got sand in the petrol tank.
