Rebuild including a steps

Just finished a lovely job rebuilding a wall and adding steps so the owner could access the land below the wall.
HUGE stone needed to make the steps! very heavy...never be in doubt that we women can move heavy stone when we need to!

Wall collapsed...

Some great stone available for steps...it has to be long enough to form a step either side of the wall.

The finished wall...still needing copes but with steps in place!

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.
