Lime pointing

Last week I ran a two day lime training event organised by the NECT HSI. After a lecturing about lime mortars, slaking some putty, mixing several mortars with different sands, having a good look at the existing pointing on the barns at Low Luckens, we eventually got our hands dirty and did this.

From left to right; raked out, pointed and knocked back about four hours later.

Graffiti No.2

On a backstreet in Nelson, Lancashire.  The painted wickets have many layers from decades of regular repainting.
