Dry stone walling: Day 22 & 23

Well, the weather over the Bank Holiday weekend has been great so far.  With any luck we will end up with 3 good days on the trot.  Difficult to believe when Friday’s weather was so cold and wet.

With most of the work done inside of the cottages and the builders due to start next week, our attention has turned back to the dry stone wall in the orchard.  It is a real pleasure to work outdoors in such fine weather.  With two of us working on it together, we have made significant progress in the last couple of days.

End of day 23.  The wall closest to us has just foundation stones, the next section is about 50cms high, the next section is complete but without coping stones and the wall furthest away has coping stones.
