What a great finish to a wall. Angus and Caroline fitted on the last three cope stones after inserting a bottle with details of the build left as a message to the future. The neighbours and their families arrived to celebrate with suitable refreshments, sparklers, speeches and an amazing cake. The cake had been made with blocks of chocklate sponge and a coping of chocklate buttons. Each person was offered delightful pieces of simulated stones.

I often travel long distances to find jobs in dry stone. I was very fortunate recently to find an opportunity to build a wall close enough to nip home each lunch time. The regular cups of tea, biscuits and pieces of cake from the owners, the entertaining chat with them and their children added greatly to the experience.
