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.

Scottish Walls

On one of my annual climbing trips to the highlands I spotted these two examples:-
 The wall above is in the forest at Aviemore.  Typically it has a slightly overhanging cope.
This one is a relatively new wall at the western end of Aviemore.  The stone is mostly Granite with copes and throughs of another blacker rock which I think is schist and is quite slabby, so it'd make better throughs than the granite.
