Building a dry stone bridge -Part 8

Springers are shaped and wrestled into position.
Their bottoms are level. Their tops angle to the centre point of the circle about two feet below the form.

Yes a couple were 'sawn' but a lot of them were 'hand-dressed' from springer-like shapes found in the tons of stone we brought down to the site.

Oh, did I mention the poison ivy everywhere ?
