The original wall had collapsed over many, many years, was completely overgrown and barely recognisable. The clients asked for this to be re-instated creating a boundary/ wind break within the extensive garden that ran up a slope from right to left. Most of the stone, including the large wall ends were dug up from the old wall. A few tons of extra stone was gathered from a nearby farmer's quarry.
