The Collapsing Wall

A collapse has happened at the cottage. Part of our lovely dry stone wall at the side of the car park collapsed last night during some high winds and heavy rain. We were quite taken aback at the damage when we got up this morning as although the weather was quite unpleasant it didn't seem bad enough to create this much bother. A section of the wall about 8m long has fallen into our neighbours garden.
Plenty of exercise for Pam and I this afternoon and continuing into tomorrow to remove all of the stone from the neighbours driveway to a safe location and then we will have to arrange for the local builder to carry out some essential repairs.
