A sunny patch...
Drystone walls are, with hedgerows, one of the most commonly used field boundaries in England, and help create what we now regard as the traditional pattern of field and lanes so evocative of rural England.

While hedgerows are most common in the Lowland Zone, drystone walling is most often found in the Upland, Zone. It defines the landscape of Yorkshire, cuts the land like endless veins.
The story I was told was that they were loose stone because of the wind, now 'whistling' through...
Stuck together, the wind would just blow them over in no time!
The roots of drystone walling as a method of enclosing fields lie at least as far back as the Iron Age and is still used today!
Wishing you a day full of good light and thanx for your visit, M, (*_*)
