The sun is shining and the roofers are fixing the first slates onto our new roof, you can't ask for a better start to the week than that!

A blot in our landscape has been recently removed c/o James Herd, a local waller so famous among those in the know that people gasp audibly when you say you've got him working for you. (Despite appearances to the contrary, the Lake District National Park is not heaving with skilled and inexpensive wallers just dying to get going on your project, though there are plenty of retired bank managers and teachers who will 'have a go' at great cost to your budget and patience). In just under 3 working days he and his assistant - also a James - transformed the natural bog that lies at the heart of the garden here, with this simple and beautiful wall, all built with stone found on site and without a single tool.
