Five Men on a Seat

Thursday, November 15th 2012

Members of the Leyburn branch of the DSWA (Dry Stone Walling Association) were hard at work once more to start the last phase of the CPRE funded project. The wall has been a great attraction over recent weeks as visitors, school pupils and volunteers have all enjoyed watching it grow from a pile of rubble to a beautiful feature.

Wall update

The curved wall has a built in seat which will provide adequate seating for an entire class of school children. Here is the team from this afternoon testing out the height of the seat. It is a bit too late in the day to move it up an inch now though! The remaining coping stones will be placed on the top next and the wall will be finished in the near future, watch this space!

It is like a talent contest for ‘TheLast of the Summer Wine’!
