Six branch members came along to help complete the stone seat at Duddingston Glebe garden: Dave, Alan, Chris, Lukas, myself and new member Jim. Lots of mortar mixing was involved to fix the previously selected seat panels in place, so many thanks to Jim and Chris who carried out this wet work so willingly. Luckily there was plenty of stone left over after the copes had been sorted out during our previous visit and we managed to construct the rest of the seat back by early afternoon, following a short rain induced lunch break.
The remaining mortar helped secure the smaller top stones and will hopefully prevent the rough looking copestones from being dislodged. Reports the next day congratulated us on a beautiful looking seat and we are promised another dry stone bench to build on our next visit.
