During a dry stone walling course you will:


• Learn the basic principles of dry stone walling.


• Increase your understanding of the need to conserve drystone walls.


• Enjoy working in the countryside alongside others with similar interests

  in structured but informal atmosphere.


The course teaches the basic principles of dry stone walling, which will involve taking down (stripping out) a derelict or damaged section of wall and rebuilding it to DSWA standards.

You can work at your own pace and are not under pressure.


The courses are open to anyone from teens to 80+,

provided they are reasonable fit and well.
