Drystone Wall - Fylingthorpe

So 11 years since leaving Yorkshire to live in Ireland I recently got my first walling job back home at a lovely farm at Flylingthorpe a stone's throw away from my home.

The corner has collapsed partially due to the fill settling, foundations giving away and numerious small trees.

Dismantle all the dodgy bits and dig out the old foundation stones at the bottom and re-set the biggest stones again.

And a couple of days later interrupted by several inches of snow, we have the finished article. You can hardly see where the old stone meets my replacement.

Pretty pleased with it as I think it is also the only wall I've built from regular coursed stone.

So if you want a drystone wall repaired or a completely new one do give me a call!!
