Cobbling something together

Dean Rogers and Jonathan Millar sorting cobbles

The cobbles have been lifted from their position on the terrace at the back of the house.   Dean and Jonathan, experts who have been working with cobbles for 10 years in churches and gardens, have been cleaning the cobbles and discarding the badly worn and marked ones. The perfect ones will be re-laid in lime and damp sand. The design hasn’t been decided yet as there are many ways of laying them, but they hope to get started on it tomorrow. I would love to go and watch them being laid but if I think like this I would have to go and live there as there is always something interesting going on.
