337 Minninglow

"You get a bit chilly on a job like this", admitted Brian Broadbent as he added another stone to the wall beside the High Peak Trail. These walls look such a natural part of the landscape it's easy to overlook the labour that went into their construction. Though most are around 200 years old, some at Roystone Grange date back to Roman times. And when Brian has finished, his handiwork will be ready to withstand another couple of centuries.
