#TreeSquare (10) Over the Wall


A winter scene in Wharfedale, Yorkshire.  Despite the often inclement weather the wall is, like many others, known as a “Dry Stone Wall”.  Traditional field boundaries made from local stones, skilfully interlinked in there construction without the use of mortar or cement.  Dry Stone Walls are common in many regions across the UK.  The construction does differ from region to region, each has a distinctive style of its own. Variations there maybe but they all seem to have stood the test of time. Probably, these walls will out live the trees, trees that have most likely self-seeded,  finding sanctuary for their roots in the shelter of the wall.
