We managed to get half a day today once the rain stopped to finish off the wall in the bottom field. We started on the wall on the right hand side of the gate a couple of weeks ago. There wasn’t a wall here previously, just a gate post. We have used all sorts of odd stone from around the property to build up this wall. In fact, it has been a good way of getting rid of quite a lot of stone. Once it all weathers in, it will look as if it has been there forever.
The rain stopped this afternoon and this gave us enough time to finish off the wall that we started on a couple of weeks ago. We just need to find some coping stones now.
We used a line to get the top of the wall straight and level. It is amazing how this simple approach produces a very straight line. The wall is made up of all sorts of different stone (and the occasionally brick!) from around the property. If nothing else, the wall is a good way of getting rid of a lot of the surplus stone.
