Photographer's Note

On Dartmoor once again.
The UK has many types of stone walls, the style and construction can be identified by where you are in the UK.
I am particularly fond of the herringbone walls that can be seen in the south west.
Here you can see the distinctive 'herringbone' design.
A wide wall/hedge filled with soil so that plants and their roots strengthen the structure.

Often for farm walls and hedges the source of stone is normally from the land being cleared.

Decomposed granite (abundant on Dartmoor) is favoured because it is smooth and flat. The herringbone pattern helps to use up the small pieces.

The fence? Probably to keep deer out of this particular area.
Pink, purple foxgloves added a bit of colour.

Two more pictures in the w/s.

Thanks for looking.
