In this recording, my journey with Michael Conry continued to Milford, to Duckett’s Grove Lodge entrance, where we viewed the workmanship involved in building with magnificent Carlow granite in the 19th century. Our next stop was at the back of Duckett’s Grove Castle, where Michael spoke about a type of walling known as a ‘Scotch fence’ which is characteristic of the landscape. Our journey came to an end at the outskirts of Carlow town, close to Michael’s own home in Chapelstown, to view a very fine example of a column-crusher.
