A sturdy looking, well fabricated, preponderantly structural, curved dry stone wall now marks the entrance to the Northumberland Hills Hospital in Northumberland County, Ontario, very near to where I live.
Congratulations to all the men who worked so fast to get it built. Beautiful random shaped pieces of quarried chocolate limestone from Madoc Ontario look to have been painstakingly squared and fitted into a conventional coursed wall pattern typical of what you would see everywhere in Yorkshire England .
Northumberland Hills Hospital Foundation executive director Rhonda Cunningham said that the revitalization of the front garden is a perfect example of community partners co-operating to create a lasting legacy for the enjoyment of patients and visitors.
“We are honoured to be the recipient of this exciting project, and can’t wait for everyone to see the final result,” Cunningham said.
