 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...
