|Unloading the bricks
Chris got to work straight away and has already built the curved retaining wall. Cutting some old (personally reclaimed) land drains in half, he built in a mini pyramid with them in the centre of the curve. It looks really quaint. Because of the frosty conditions, it was all covered up with bubble wrap, plastic sheeting, cardboard, hessian and boards. He even moved all the unused bricks off the drive to give us a little more room.

Following the thaw and yet more heavy rain we now have a moat where we'd rather not have one! Or, if we have any more frosts, we'll have a mini ice rink!
