Dry stone walling is an ancient craft that has changed little since before the building of the Pyramids. The term ‘dry’ refers to the fact the wall contains no cement or mortar and is held together by the stone itself, and the way the wall is constructed.
The courses are open to anyone with reasonable fitness, with no prior knowledge or experience. The courses are wholly practical, although there will be plenty of opportunities to talk about other aspects such as the history of walling, throughout the course.
The locations where the walling takes place have limited or no facilities but the scenery isn’t. Dates run throughout the year with a limited number in the winter months.
