stile styles

stile, n. a step, or set of steps, for climbing over a wall or fence.

Wherever we walk in UK, inevitably we have to cross stiles on our route, and Pembrokshire was no exception! On this trip we came across many different styles which Tom models in the pictures below.



The simple stile. One step, a couple of rails, and a post to hold on to.








The Dog Stile - a simple stile, with the added feature of a dog gate that is operated by lifting the plank as shown by Tom.









The Stone Stile - we didn't see many of this type in Pembrokshire. In this stile, the steps are build into the wall of stone











The Useful Stile - stiles are ever useful as a seat when the ground is damp or for when one needs to adjust their boots.









The Lookout Stile - useful for when the bushes impede one's view.










The Kissing Gate - this is not really a stile, but is a closely related cousin and serves the same purpose of a stile.









The gate - again not a stile, but this conventional method of accessing the next field (albeit with a fancy lever closure) was also common sight in Pembrokeshire.

rachelle this is great!
It's funny how I was looking for this type of thing and found your post: stile styles. It pulled me right out of my researching on french kissing products and allowed me to sit down for a nice read. Thanks for your great job rachelle. I think I'll hang out on your blog for a while and be done with french kissing stuff for now. Have a good day rachelle.

Howdy rachelle,
I'm impressed with what you wrote here in your stile styles post. I'm a little embarrassed to admit what that I was searching for french kissing information, but found you and I'm happy to be here - you have well done with topics of interest to me. I might make a blog that looks like yours but about french kissing related stuff, (don't worry I wouldn't try to compete with you). You're doing a great job rachelle.
You got a great thing going... by friend.

Hi there rachelle,
Just to give you a heads up, you're probably going to get some more comments on this post: stile styles. I found you when I was out looking for the latest info about french kissing tips products, and even though this doesn't relate to french kissing tips, I still had to stop and tell you that you're doing a great job. You're about to get some visits from my brother and sister. I told them about your blog so I hope you don't mind.

rachelle, what are we going to do...? I'm not sure about you but it's getting harder and harder to enjoy my blog because of all the spam it's getting attacked with. You may be having a similar problem... I enjoy my normal site about making out because it doesn't get cluttered with shallow comments, but when I'm visiting other blogs and places on the web looking for making out stuff it seems to be everywhere.

Well, good luck with your website goals. I wish you the best.
