Dry Stone Walling Experience

Details

Dry stone walling is a traditional farming skill that has been passed down through the generations for 100's of years, and is important for stock control and safety, and have marked the Lake District landscape throughout history. What is a dry stone wall? It’s simple … it’s a wall built without any cement, and is held together by carefully choosing the placing the right stones, using the right technique. A well-built dry stone wall should last a generation and many in the Lakes have been standing for a lot longer.

Ever wondered what’s involved with this traditional skill? With our expert-lead dry stone walling experience, you can find out. Isaac has been building and mending dry stone walling on Lakeland farms his whole life.
The experience is great for all ages and abilities and is a great family activity or team building event.

The activity is done inside at our purpose-build walling space. At the start of the session you will receive walling tuition and shown how to wall and the steps involved to complete a wall gap. Then, with the knowledge you will set off to complete your own wall gap. You will be left with the challenge then you can receive feedback as you finish.
