Dry stone mud bathing at Orley Common

By Jeremy Weiss

It could have been a total disaster… but instead turned out to be a very satisfying and enjoyable day at Orley Common. It had rained heavily all night and the ground was sopping. Mick and Gary were dispatched to find some straw to put down and this worked well with the sunshine helping to raise the spirits.

The last course had been spent dismantling the wall, pulling out roots, shifting vast quantities of stone, and rebuilding the footings. Impressively, many of the participants of that course returned and they were able to reap the rewards of the hard work they’d put in previously. Today we spent building and the wall which, in spite of its enormity, came up quickly.

A great day and amazing spirit and enthusiasm shown by all.

The next course is next Saturday at the South Devon Steiner School – Wattle Hurdles. Once place is still available.
