Walls of the old stone variety

When I travel, I take a fair few photos of walls. Particularly old stone walls, usually up close so you can see the way they’ve been constructed.

For this week’s WordPress photo challenge, with the theme of WALL, I therefore thought I’d share some of the of the old English walls I’ve come across in the past few years.

I love the way every wall is unique, fitted together like a mosaic. Or tetras blocks.

And the really old walls, like the city wall around Exeter in Devon, bear signs of all the ages, having being built by Romans and Saxons and Normans and others besides. (For more on the Exeter wall, see The many things I like about Exeter.)

  1. Beautiful stone walls, Ellen. Here in NJ (USA), the oldest stone walls were built in the 1700’s (some of the oldest in the country) – pretty young compared to the ones you have found. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thanks for inspiring me to find some walls here and take some pictures.
    Lovely post.

    1. Thank you, Mar… like you, we don’t have anything near as old as these stone walls here in Australia. And there are so many in the UK! One of my favourite things to do when in England is walk around the old city walls where they still exist. ๐Ÿ™‚
      I’m glad you enjoyed the post.
