25 years ago when we started bulding there were two round stone pillars at our lane., only problem was the gate was only seven feet wide, so one had to go to let lorries in. The piller was always intended to be put back, leaving a wider entrance, but you know how there's always something else to do :lol: Well finally the piller has made it to the top of the list and we made a start on a new one yesterday. We're using stones picked from the fields in the spring, so materials are not scarce. this is the start and will put up some pics as we go along.
Making progress with the building and now have 3 traditional pillars, where there used to be one :lol:
My good friend Phillip , the builder , and the apprentise, (me), I'm just posing, he did the bulk of the work. We have got the tops on 2 of them today and made a start to restoring an old iron field gate to hang between two of them.
