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 89 - Frofti Graf. It's 8.05am on 7th January 2021 and it's the first recorded clear of a New Year, though the ftones laugh at the paffage of a year, which is but the blink of an eye to them. The world descends into chaos, but the ftocean remains constant and calm with everything slowly being put in its correct place. Some are calling Herring mad, but perhaps he is the only fane man on the planet. The stones certainly tell him that he is. The cold earth grips her stones tight. But Herring prises them away and the stones thank him. Literally. Let he who has ears underftand.
