FENCES AROUND THE WORLD FOR GOSIA

On our last trip to Williamsburg, Virginia, we found this interesting place. I will share more about it soon. In the meantime here are some fences, the kind that were built in Colonial times in America.  






The photo above and below shows how gates were made in those days.  Two sturdy fence posts on each side, with notches in them holding the rails.  These rails would be slid in and out when needed to keep in any livestock, or remove them from their enclosure.

If you would like to see other fences, or join in with your own, you can go here.  Thank you for hosting Gosia, and thank you everyone for visiting my blog.  

Have a great weekend and I will be back on Monday.

  4. i love the way these type fences look, the appeal to my rustic nature. I liked those cabins also.... it took a lot of work to get the trees ready to make these fences and a lot of hard back breaking work to build and maintain.

    1. Thank you Sandra, I feel the same way about rustic, cabins too :) I have thought how hard people worked back in those times, even more so lately since visiting places such as these.
