Just recently I returned to the Mendip hills, where I had a contract to repair numerous sections of fallen walls, . When sorting the stone, I uncovered 4 long pieces of stone, On the instructions of the land owner, I left them proud of the wall, to be used as steps.
At the 2014 North Somerset Show, the Dry stone Walling Association S/W once again made the focus of our exhibition. Hands on building experience, and learning for both young and old
This small wall, was constructed from 75% reclaimed stone. On all of my projects, I prefer to source used stone, and mix and match when the opportunity allows.
