HELP! Building a Wormery

Hi everyone, I am sharing an allotment with a friend for the first time, and want to build a wormery to keep there.

I have been reading on the internet and could reallly do with someone who can clarify things for me... some wormeries have a tap, some are in levels, some have gravel, some have sand...

I have a large plastic box ready to be wormified, and a drill to drill holes. I also have some gravel, but I dont know if sand is better. I dont know whether to put drainage holes in the bottom or not. Also what most websites dont say is how deep the layers need to be...

Please help a confused newbie!! Shocked

Thank you! Those are really helpful! I have decided on my layers, and have acquired some dendrabaena worms from the local angling shop. Down to the allotment today to construct it all! I'll take some photos and post a link.

Thanks again...
