Photograph of a stile built in to a stone wall   A stile, in Caernarfonshire, North Wales, built in to a stone wall as a series of steps. The top step is by the person's bent knee.

These stiles can be a little more difficult to negotiate than other types because when you get to the top of the wall there is nothing for you to hold in order to steady yourself as you change sides.
