What a beautiful land

What a beautiful part of the world we live in...here on a hillside above Parwich with over 100m of wall ahead of us. The views are terrific and over the last few weeks we have watched buzzards, wrens robes and fieldfares visit us. We have seen hot air balloons, helicopters and even a spitfire fly over us.
At any point when I straighten up and stretch my aching joints I can look all around and see the green fields and white limestone walls stretching away into the distance. What joy!

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

Features

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)

Chatsworth

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.
