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.

Between Commondale & Kildale on the south side of the road at 634099 is an unusual wall, at least on the NYM. It's single width and unusually has a neat row of copes. But what is more remarkable is the care to ensure that the tops of the copes are level. To achieve this the builder /s have altered the hight of the wall to make sure that each cope ends at the right hight rather than finish the wall level and make sure the copes match!  More recently I've discovered another wall with much larger cope stones at New House Farm, Westerdale.  Look here Westerdale
