Reviews of Stoneworkers & Stonemasons in Oxfordshire
18 November 2012
We have a very old brick and flint wall. Our side is on our driveway, the other is higher up so there is earth up the first 2 feet or so.
A section of the wall is crumbling. It needs to be taken down to a sound level and re-built,. preferably using the old flints, but with new bricks.
the section is about 10 to 12 feet long. Our side of the wall is about 6feet.
I would ideally like someone with experience of using brick and flint.
Alf mended our (200-ish year old) wall using reclaimed brick and flint. He did a great job and it looks like it's always been there, ie looks like an old wall, but one which is no longer falling to pieces! Highly recommend Acorn landscaping. yvonne
