The Enclosure Movement, which began around two centuries ago and continued until the early nineteenth century, had a dramatic effect on the landscape of Britain.  In lowland Britain the hedgerow became the most common method of enclosure, while in the upland areas it was the drystone wall, built entirely without mortar of any kind.  This example is near Hebden Bridge, in the South Pennines area of Yorkshire.
