Marc..... didn't feel any fallout. Smiley It has progressed since the last image that I saw, I like the general proportions of the sett arrangement.

Thanks for posting the pictures, They show a definite set of differences in both style and manufacture.

The second and third pictures in #2 are as close to what I want to achieve, the second one shows two styles of what appear to be the same type of sett one smooth the other rough.

Although I like the first picture that you posted the setts look a lot less formal as though they were the dregs from more finished or a lot less expensive when installed.
Stone appears to maintain its original tone and shape through time though not always. I notice that some setts are set rather loosely and others more tight. I still feel that the best results will ultimately come from individual setts placed on a substrate. the trick will be for me to make a batch of convincing setts that can stand alone, vis a vis shape texture and colour, I know that I have a long road ahead yet.

It is good to sit back a while and ponder the journey.

Again thanks for the visual critique, I needed that.

Narayan the first page shows some pictures of the track and a drawing of the tool I made to roll it to the required curves.

This project is sitting atop a shelf waiting for the muse to bite.
