Discovering a dry stone wall

We’ve got a very old privet hedge (the spiky kind) as one of the boundaries in our garden. We haven’t cut it since we moved in, so it’s begining to look scruffy. As its over 2 metres tall I had to work out where to put the ladder, while clearing away the bottom I discovered a dry stone wall! A very neat job about 2 foot high made out of small stones which follows the shape of the hedge in an elegant wave. It’s been built to support the bank that the hedge is growing on. Why the previous owners left become overgrown in rather lurid pink creeping flowers I don’t know, but know it’s a feature of the garden – what a find!
