Old Walls

The stone walls of the Cotswolds were mostly erected in the mid 19th century and many have survived with little or no maintenance since that time
Tree roots are often a cause of damage as they distort the walls which have very little foundations.
There seems to be a revival in interest in the traditional drystone wall let's hope it continues.
