Pile driving by Taylor Wimpey has been disturbing neighbours a little more than usual recently. Many East Wichel residents are accustomed to the rhythmic thump of the pile driver as almost all the buildings in the village have pile-driven foundations. But the recent work by Taylor Wimpey has been shaking the ground a little more than usual. These piles will eventually take the weight of East Wichel’s long awaited shop, and the flats above. But as the shop has been permanently a year away from being built for at least five years, we’ll reserve our excitement until there’s something more to see than a forest of piles.
