Date stone

Latin, ‘Roman style’ date stone for farm steading renovation.


To commemorate the finishing of a farm steading rebuild, I was asked to carve this date stone in Clashach Sandstone.

It includes a Latin inscription “Vivendo Discimus” – through living, we learn. Above that are the entwined initials of the owners. Underneath is the date of completion as well as a nod to the builder involved.

It was mounted into the outside wall of the renovated farm steading building.
