A Challenging Wall Repair.

A section of the old dry stone wall, separating the lower slope of Queen Adelaide's Hill and Millerground, collapsed recently. 

The base of the wall is a good eighteen feet above Millerground footpath and as can be seen in the following images the slope is exceptionally steep.

On the "downhill" side the wall is about eight feet high and it took a while to retrieve the stone that had tumbled down the bank.

Once the foundation stones had been reset, the rebuild could begin. (See image below)

....and from the Millerground side.
