Must have been the same builders of my local bridge that the monks have used for 800-900 years.
Is it still under the Builders Warranty?

Great work, sound and textured. Many of them probably will stand erect, but I wonder what would happen to the recently built ones.

Love the texture and tones on this Barbara, nothing today is built to last! This is why we are having so many problems as to where to dispose of all the waste.

Lovely comp and tones. I've raised the same question re our roads. Hands up anyone who thinks any of them will still be around the length of time the Roman Roads have lasted? At the rate they are deteriorating, I'd give some 10 years max before they vanish into the potholes!
