Comment: Pipework to "fosse" bedded on a bit of concrete here and there, and covered with sand. Luckily no trenches were needed and it was all covered with topsoil to a depth sufficient to protect it.
The projecting end of the stone wall forms a plinth on which the main living floor of the house sits, and will screen a little terrace outside the guest bedroom..

View from the north.

Wall nearing completion on Friday.

Rain continued, and the masons were not happy.
