Bet they wouldnt do anything like that south of the river.

Be a bit of cheap fencing across the river.

Are these technically dry stone walls? It looks like a layer of mortar under the capping stones. Very nice anyway.
It used to be said that the statue of the Black Prince had been placed in City Square , near the station, pointing South to tell all the southerners who've just got off the train to b****r off back down south!

The mortar course is probably to make it more difficult for the stones to be taken.
