Traditions in Walling


Whilst dismantling a wall in Birchover recently we found the remains of a small leather shoe/boot. 





I learnt that it was considered good luck to place the shoe of the youngest child in a wall to bring good luck.

So not wanting to break tradition we continued it, replacing the original little show and adding a modern one from a child in the village. I wonder if it will last as long?
