Dry Stone Walling work complete at Kettleness
A notable landscape feature at Kettleness has had a major facelift thanks to the dedication of a local drystone waller. Work on the traditional boundary feature alongside the Cleveland Way at Kettleness has now been completed and has made a huge impact on the coastal landscape. Neil Harland has been busy in all weathers to restore the boundary and has turned a long stretch of tumbled down wall into a tidy and stockproof traditional feature. Financial assistance for the improvement project came from the North York Moors National Park Authority's Traditional Boundary Scheme (TBS) which provided some grant aid to pay for the work.
Neil noted ‘It’s just like a giant jigsaw puzzle for adults! As long as you follow the principles of constructing a solid wall, then the boundary should last for another 100 years. It’s been a marvellous place to work, the coastal landscape around Kettleness is ever changing and truly remarkable.’
The TBS application and project administration was carried out by Mulgrave Estate.
