DRY STONE WALLING - 2017

Since 2016 Tom has widened his area of work stretching from Herefordshire to Bucks and into Warwickshire. There is continued demand for high quality dry stone walling. The work is as varied as the weather as you will see from the pictures here and on the Previous Work page.

Many of the walls needed to be repaired while others are new. All require the same care and attention to detail. This includes the choice of stone, the appropriate capping and style of building. For some conservation areas these elements are proscribed - eg where other properties in the village have upright copes any new wall may be required to be the same.

Time is spent clearing the site with perhaps some hedge cutting or tree pruning, and then making good at the end of the job, lawn seed will be sown if necessary. All waste material is taken to reclamation/recycling sites for recycling. Green waste is separated from hardcore and goes to composters while stone and other materials are crushed so repairing your wall is a 'Green' thing to do.

Tom can arrange for name plates, carved or engraved stone property names and other accessories as requested. He is also in touch with sources of different stone for capping or paving.

Boundary walls are a special feature of the countryside and we notice them particularly along country lanes. Landowners have the expensive responsibility for their maintenance and it is always worth keeping them in good repair before it becomes a major undertaking.

There is little that makes us more happy about returning home than seeing the entrance to our property - however grand. Tom is often asked to rebuild or create new entrances as are shown on this page. - in Great Rollright, Hazlington above and another in Twyning and outside Aylesbury.
