Dry Stone Walling Workshop

Join Devon Rural Skills Trust to learn the basic principles of dry stone walling.

  • Booking essential

Dry stone walls are made entirely of stone with no mortar or soil. As a result of Devon's incredibly varied geology, there are many different types of wall found across the county. You'll be introduced to the basic principles of dry stone walling. You'll be working to repair a wall using basic hand tools such as lump hammers and bars. Shovels and mattocks are useful where footing need to be replaced.
