Dry stone walling – Day 21

Written by stephen gale

Another Saturday dry stone walling, but this time it was in the sun!  It was a beautiful day here in West Yorkshire, although the wind and the rain did set in later in the afternoon (but we were ready to pack up by then!).

We disassemble the next 3M section of wall and dug the foundations.  The photo below show how far we got during the day – probably about 5 courses up.  This means that one side of the wall is just above ground level (this side of the camera) while the other is showing a number of courses (the other side of the wall).

Another 3m section dug out and foundation stones laid.  I am not too keen on this part of the building process as it always looks a mess at this stage.  It does improve as the wall appears from the ground.
