Yesterday turned out to be a perfect Autumn day, with crisp sunshine.
I decided to take advantage of how wet it was under foot and finish putting in some fence posts I've been meaning to do all year.
This finishes off the bottom area of the coppice around some old larch trees. Because of where these are I had to put them in by hand - never a fun job!
I also added the bracing so I'm now ready to install all the wire. Another few weekends and about 8 rolls of wire and I should have the whole place fenced ready for some stock.
I've also got about 6 gates to hang. I'll have to do these with an old fashioned brace and bit (believe it or not I was taught to fit locks with one when I was an apprentice) as the power won't stretch that far. Hanging gates on your own isn't easy but I'm sure by the end of them I will have found an easy way to do it!
How does everyone elses fences look at time of year? Many repairs needed?
