Recent work

I've had some really interesting jobs this autumn, below are a few of the highlights...

Facing a block wall with offcuts in order to hide the oil bund. (see gallery to see before and afters!)
It looks so much better now...

Building walls on a new housing estate, a really different working environment!
Rebuilding a very tall (7ft) granite wall at an Abbey in Leicestershire, had to use tower scaffold to reach the top!

A lovely curved wall made with local sandstone...curves are always a little more challenging, but this one looks great!
Awaiting copestones as owner is debating whether to use traditional copes or flat ones...

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


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)


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.
