Securing an unstable dry stone wall?

Posted: 27/05/2015 at 20:20

Even if the farmer doesn't own the wall and isn't responsible for repairing it, it is still his responsibility to keep his cattle fenced securely on his property. 

It is not Louise's responsibility to keep his cattle off her land.

Good one Hosta   Everybody happy (ish) and they 'owe you one' for the future

Verdun - no you hadn't told us that ................. the result is, I take it,  of course, a foregone conclusion ?

Securing an unstable dry stone wall?

Posted: 27/05/2015 at 19:47

It's the farmer's responsibility to keep his cattle in his field.  If you're concerned that the wall is insecure make sure he knows.  Also make sure he knows that your young children play in the garden, explain that young cattle are naturally curious creatures and they seem attracted to your garden when your children are playing there. 

Explain that rather than risk harm, injury and damage to your family and your property, you're giving him the chance to secure his boundary with proper cattle-proof fencing or substantial repairs to the wall. 

You could also mention that your understanding of insurance matters is that, if he has been made aware of problems with the wall and does nothing, his insurance company may not pay out on any public liability claims and he may be personally liable.

You can say all that in the friendliest of ways, but still get your point across.

Hi Debs

I think you've done well to suss that lot out - it took me a while.  Not sure what to do about getting rid of multiple quotes other than deleting them as they appear. 

You could try contacting the web team website@gardenersworld.com - they'll probably be able to help you - but don't suppose they'll be about until tomorrow.

Good luck

What could this be?

Dove I can and do drive when I am on my own, but I don't enjoy it.  OH  loves driving,  he has been driving ever since he was old enough.  He is a terrible passenger. though.  It works well for us. 

If it works for you that's great sorry, wasn't meaning to sound bossy

KEF - there ought to be some sort of award!

And I've noticed Wonky giving occasional snippets of advice!  The girl's coming on
