Dry Stone Walling - Courses & Events

Training course

The branch run training courses in dry stone walling, as well as hosting exams at levels from Initial to Advanced.

During the year we also take part in agricultural shows and other events, where we demonstrate our craft.


After a break due to Covid-19, our courses are now running once again, and we look forward to welcoming new students!  For the safety of trainees, the branch recently made a major purchase of personal protective equipment (PPE), which will be available during all our courses.
