Stone Clearing With Richard Herring

Stone Clearing With Richard Herring

The world's first podcast dedicated to the ancient art of Stone Clearing (removing stones from a field and using them for better purpose) which will serve as an introduction to the industry for the newcomer, but hopefully provide tips for the many other stone clearers around the world, as well of being of interest to people who like to hear poor quality audios of an unfit man walking round a field, moving stones and talking to himself, whilst trying to pretend to other dog walkers that he isn't doing that. Over the next years and decades it will be a weekly update on Richard Herring's attempts to build a wall around the huge field that can be seen from space and also rid the said field of anything that is bigger than a piece of soil, to a depth of 5 metres. Along the way we will learn much about life, death, the futility of existence and how sometimes when you attempt the impossible you can succeed. Though most times you won't. For more information on stone clearing please read Richard's daily blog (warning - contains some non-stone clearing blogs), Warming Up

Remember this effort is a secret. Please do not tell anyone what Richard is doing.

Chapter 5: Dementia Dog. It's 8.20am on December 9th 2018 and conditions are breezy with occasional drizzle. The ground is still moist, which should be a worry for those who are concerned about global warming, but it's great news for stone clearers. Covered in this chapter: whether it's heresy to wear any type of clothing on the field; how to deal with sibling stones; marking your territory; what happens when you encounter an unfriendly dog owner; being the first non-bald man to wear a head torch; how the stone gods show their pleasure; where do the new stones come from; and why are all the cairns so pathetically small after all this time. Plus an encounter with Fred and his friends.
