amazing historical photo! by "drystone", i assume you mean no mortar was used? that makes a structure like this even more impressive, given the steep slope. one wonders how long it too to build this sort of thing... :O

Even by Yorkshire standards that's a pretty impressive wall! I love old green-lanes like this.

yup drystone walls means just that,........no mortar at all used in there construction, there foundations being big flat stones, i can see a bit of mortar on the end of the wall in shot 1 above the stream, but that is a repair to the wall and not original, the wall could well have been standing against the elements for over 100 years

That's very kind of you, Gary. :-)
I have not forgotton your earlier photo in which I first saw these walls (as well as your promise!!)
Now we see that the snow has removed (or are these autumn shots?) Might these enclosures and twin walls still be active for stock breeding today ?

Great photos of an interesting place. Funny how I learn about a lot more than photography in these forums.
