Have a Go Dry Stone Walling
The aim of the course is to give participants a basic introduction to dry stone walling. Content varies but concentrates on placing stone on stone and letting you see if you want to further the craft with a longer course. It will include some or all of dismantling a wall and relaying the wall up to the coping (top stones). It is held on the dedicated Dry Stone Walling site at Newton Rigg College, Penrith.
