Photos of Chris & Neils works at Horney Common started 24/09/03 late am.

This is a crazy paved terraced area using "ex-council" faded reclaimed paving

I initially visited on 9th June 2003 and came up with this simple sketch

 

Photos of the works start to finish will appear below!

The existing drive was to remain with a stepped terraced area created using reclaimed crazy paving.

Chris has started the brickwork! A step will be needed!

Monday and the ballast should arrive for the concrete sub base! We also have 2 drains to adjust! Then we will have a few days on the crazy paving. Pointing takes longer with crazy paving. This may have to be completed in short stretches between the showers next week! Who knows what our English weather might bring!
