The Chevin-2, Otley

12.03.19 - 13.03.19
DSWA Placement with Axis Walling

The Chevin-2 was a chance for me to start practicing towards my dry stone walling intermediate certificate exam.

This was a very difficult build and I was 4 hours over the time limit. The walling hammer had drawn me in and I spent too much time on dressing stone.

The lesson was very simple. it was crucial to complete the build in the allocated time when the exam cames round. More practice was needed so I scheduled another another session after Chevin-2.
