Excellent work building the new, wider bed with York stone, clearing away rubbish and rubble, and cutting back the of the ivy and spindle by RW Green to improve access to the wall and manage the sheer weight and volume of vegetation.
Some interesting finds – including very old brackets for training wires
and a brick portal to…somewhere!
In September the concrete facing works will take place on the bare sections, which we plan to then plant up with more spindle, ivy and hopefully some troughs to encourage more plant species.
Then should be good (with a little maintenance) for another 200 years!
