OLD FENCE

An old post-and-rail fence using rails fitted into mortises in (split) posts with the ends of adjacent rails overlapping in the mortises. Although post-and-rail fences are the most iconic of Australian rural fences, they were expensive and required some skill to build successfully. This one is found in Warrandyte, an outer Melbourne suburb.

This post is part of the Good Fences meme.
