Almost uniquely British and gradually disappearing from the countryside, the stile is a symbol of a world being left behind.


Every stile is unique, hand made, perhaps by someone who had never made a stile before.

I wanted to document as many stiles as I could before they are replaced with factory produced gates, and instagram was to obvious place to do that. Whether you have an instagram account or not, go to to see the greatest collection of stiles on the internet.
