Kissing gates

The top picture was sent to me by Sean Adcock it shows a brilliant use of Welsh slate to create a Kissing gate.The second photo is another gate
close to my home town, a  Victorian Kissing gate. It must be quite a long time since it was used and sadly most of  the stone from the original adjoining walls has been removed. However there is a crop of modern houses nearby and some of them have very attractive rockeries. Probably where some of the rocks went. Recycling is much preferable to dumping.
The entry on 28th April is a curved wall built by Chris Barclay.
