Extreme Walling

Tracey Blackwell sent this photo of stonework above an old quarry quite close to her home in Yorkshire. One can only wonder at the skill and dedication of the folk who built this retaining wall. Apparently there is a severe fault in the rock at the top of the quarry which could have led to part of the field sliding into the space.Even now in the 21st century a repair in this situation would have presented a major problem.
