Aye

A good made post like that will save a lot of time by no having to be replacing it

Will look good when you've installed a few more and made enough time to trim the hedge šŸ‘

I love Holly.
Its one of the few shrubs /trees that we find sheep wont browse.

Installed six full sets in the last week or so, very high gateway to field ratio here, which is a bit of a pita and definitely costly.
rail line is a bit dear now and harder to get so its back to concrete (but if they are not really heavy made they can crack if driven into ) and galv. ms. nowadays.

ideal would be some 7'6" 7x 4 of a good weight rsj with hangings welded on then sent to the galvanisers i reckon.

I trust that you were true to your user name and ran your tractor on red diesel.
I studied the guidelines carefully and concluded that as the tractor hasn't been filled up since 1997 (about the time of its last oil change), it is still legitimately running its tank down according to HMRC rules. Although we were working at "Mrs Fred's dad's", he actually passed away several years ago and his bungalow, along with the access lane, now belong to Mrs Fred who is a vital and irreplaceable part of the farm's operation. The fence also forms one side of Mrs Fred's livestock operation keeping in chickens, guinea pigs, spaniel etc.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistratesā€™ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbotā€™s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined Ā£150 each and ordered to pay a Ā£15 offenderā€™s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gillā€™s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
