ST2399 : Beech hedge and dry stone wall

Beech hedge and dry stone wall.
Beech hedge and dry stone wall.
In this picture you can see three main ways of keeping stock in a field:- there is barbed wire, a dry stone wall and an old beech hedge, which had been allowed to become overgrown, but which is now being cared for. The wire on this side of the wall may be there to stop people climbing over the wall. People who are not familiar with dry stone walls do not realise that climbing over them often damages them, because stones become dislodged from the top, and then the rest of the wall is easily knocked down. The tall trees in the distance look as though they were once 'laid' into a hedge but have been allowed to grow into trees.
