This is the chance to spend a day with trainer Paul Kent, learning hands-on how to build a traditional dry stone wall. This is a very useful skill for both use in the open landscape as well as in your garden.
Dry stone walls are a classic feature of the upland landscape, their majestic lines follow the terrain and they demark the boundary between the upland commons and the enclosed field systems of surrounding farms. Not only are these walls important heritage features they also perform the vital role of keeping grazing animals on the commons. Sadly, many walls are now in poor condition. Why is this? Until recently commoners actively managed the uplands where they reared livestock. However, changes in subsidy and the tough nature of the land has resulted in lower levels of farming and the walls have simply fallen into disrepair.
We hope to have some dates soon from July onwards but please let us know if you are interested as an individual or enquire for small group bookings.
