Ah, Ha...Ha

Thank goodness the weather has now picked up a lttle, it has felt a long time coming! This spring has seen some lovely projects so far including my first Ha Ha. A rebuild of an almost derelict wall, reinstating it to its original wavy line!
Spring has obviously been the season for driveways and gateways as I have completed 2 more and am about to embark on another tomorrow

 2021 so far...walling alone due to lockdown...again!

... and it has been a very wet and very cold winter which seems to have been the norm over the last few years!

Made getting to work impossible for several days.

20m of Limestone field wall near Parwich


Work has been constrained and re-ordered due to lockdown and weather. However, nights are getting lighter the snowdrops are appearing, buds are starting to sprout tiny leaves and the woodpecker is hammering furiously to attract a mate...and this waller is sloshing around in mud building walls!

Enjoyed this job near Kirk Ireton...when from a delivered pile of rough stone emerges a gateway...4 cheek ends, 2 curves and a load of hand made copestones! Deeply satisfying...






The finished gateway...
