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.
So, there was a big pile of stones from some field wall which had been dismantled. "Can you make me some walls please?". The long gradual curve on the bottom picture is always the difficult bit as it is difficult to keep the curve regular and even batter with the correct width at the top.
I'm quite pleased with the result. Although it is only a small amount of walling there are 4 wall ends and 3 corners in total. Just to add to the small difficulty of making the curve I also had to make the wall around the curve gradually reduce in hight to make it end at top rail of the old gate.
