Dry Stone Walls of Britain: Ancient Boundaries Still Defined by Stacked Stone Walls

Tractor Tales from Wales

Gerallt Jones is pictured here rebuilding a damaged section of a very wide old wall in the Conwy Valley, North Wales. The width of this wall once allowed it to be used not just as a boundary, but also as a causeway over ground that was (and still is) frequently flooded during the winter months. Huge slabs placed flat on the top are worn down in the middle from hundreds of years of footsteps, showing that it certainly had plenty of use.
