Previous Work

2016 - work continued in a number of counties particularly in Buckhinghamshire where an impressive entrance ws constructed. 2014 - 15 was hectic with some really important projects finished. A major repair in Ramsden and another in Middleton Stoney. A high wall below in Rollright along with the gravelling and edging of the driveway.

Another high wall (this time mortared) at the Witney Meeting House, a nice curved wall in Wilcote with twice-weathered toppers and a gated enclosure in Freeland are just three more of the finished projects.

Just some of the varied walling projects Tom has undertaken over the past years. Take a look at the different styles on the website when thinking about a new build.

 

Work was done in Great Rollright (see above) and Kingham as well as Standlake, Middleton Stoney and one in Chipping Norton. At all times Tom strives for quality so that the walls will stand for many decades to come.

When a wall on the roadside is damaged it becomes a hazard to traffic and pedestrians. The owner could also be liable for any injury as a result of falling stones. It should always be taped off and loose stone and waste should, where possible, be stored on the opposite side of the wall.

Vehicles frequently damage walls and they are expensive to repair though should be covered by the driver's insurance. It is also important to have the repair done quickly as the area could be a hazard to pedestrians and cyclists.

You will notice here that the old wall on either side is showing signs of wear but for the time being without so much vegetation it should stand for a number of yers before needing repair.
