AN OLD GRINDING WHEEL.
Here’s an old grinding wheel that was once used for sharpening knives and tools. It was recovered from a stream which runs through the old manor complex of Keynedon Barton in South Devon where it had been lying there for more than 60 years. ‘The Lodge’ is situated within the grounds of this manor complex and we have just completed a new retaining wall in front of it, all built in natural stone. It was decided that the old grinding wheel would have the name ‘The Lodge’ carved into it and then set into the new wall as a feature.

NEWNHAM PARK ESTATE WALL.
As mentioned previously in earlier posts we have been carrying out substantial repair work to the garden walls at Newnham Park Estate on the outskirts of Plymouth, and these repairs have now been completed. The scope of the work involved us rebuilding two sections of the garden wall and completely renewing the slate coping along its entire length.

NEWNHAM PARK ESTATE.
We have for the last few months been carrying out repairs to a Grade II listed garden wall in the grounds of Newnham Park Estate in Plympton, Plymouth. One section of the wall had collapsed whilst another section had to be taken down as it was on the point of collapse and deemed to be too dangerous in its present state. Now that both sections of wall have been rebuilt, we have almost finished laying a new slate coping on top of its entire length.
In the next few days the work should be completely finished after which we will post a link to our main website showing you what was carried out.
