2019 - 2020 - A year not to be forgotten!

What a year 2020 has been...A year of working alone, not meeting with colleagues, no shows, no teaching and a number of jobs lost. Still, I consider myself blessed to have a job where I can be outside, not needing to worry about commuting or having to wear a face mask!

In 2019 I finished 250m of a wall in Kirk Ireton which has become known as Emma's wall to friends and neighbours who walked past on a daily basis to observe progress. It was almost a 4 season wall!








Finished!





2019 A group of wallers from the Derbyshire Branch of the DSWA spent 5 days on Orkney building a wall for a community. It was a memorable experience for us all and left a beautiful curved seat.




2019 Two operations on my hands slowed me down towards the end of the year!



Extending and rebuilding a wall encompassing a wheel as a feature


One of my most favourite walls to date in The Brund, a 60m retaining wall, all dry stone. A beautiful setting which I worked on during the fabulous weather of the first lockdown 2020.



Returned to a job to finally put the tops on completing a lovely garden wall project
