Finished, despite the rain and aided by Pink Floyd

Finished the second third of the long wall and have now been requested by the owner of the third section to complete that too!



First time walling in heavy rain - not fun; slipping and sliding in mud - not fun. Finally sorted out headphones to make walling to music possible - great fun!
Somehow, Pink Floyd's The Wall seemed quite appropriate! (Apart from the lyrics, 'tear down the wall' perhaps!)

As a member of the Derbyshire Dry Walling Association I attended the Chatsworth Show where we built a beautiful wall commemorating the wallers who left the hills and Dales to fight in WW1

Features

Here are some lovely features Trevor and I have been putting in garden walls this summer A wall we have just finished where we repositioned and reset the name of the property and put in a postbox. (Trevor built the front of this wall)

Chatsworth

Just returned from a lovely weekend at Chatsworth Show with our local branch of the DSWA (Dry Stone Walling Association)  DDSWA It's a great meeting of Derbyshire wallers of all abilities from beginners to master craftsmen, professionals to amateurs and hobby wallers. We always build a new feature which stays in situ for a year. This year we built a straight wall of around 7-8m with a wheel, cantilevered seats, hog holes or sheep creeps and other small niches. It's also a great opportunity to promote walling and the  beginners courses  that we run throughout the year.
