I live and work in the North York Moors area

I'm a qualified hedgelayer and have laid hedges in Ireland, Holland and in the UK. I'm also a drystone waller and have built houses (and walls), garden features, gate entrances in Ireland, Australia and in England.

I've been told I'm a bit of walling and hedgelaying nerd. But I don't mind it because it's normal. Doesn't everyone stop and take pictures of these when they are on holiday?

Some of the site contains my work along with pictures of hedges, walls and walling features from places I've visited. It should be pretty obvious which is my work.

The Walker's Seat - Cowbar, Staithes

I volunteered my services to the National Park a couple of weeks ago to demolish and rebuild this seat a little further from the sea.

The two days it took me and several national park apprentices to complete the work were done over the stormiest weather I've ever had to work in. Redcar a couple of miles away recorded wind speeds of 68 mph. It was certainly enough to make sure you couldn't stand still in the teeth of the storm and it was not the kind of conditions you could concentrate in for long.
