Dry Stone Walling - Intermediate

| £99
Course Provider: Cotswolds Conservation Board
This is a 2 day dry stone walling intermediate course which is designed for people with some experience of dry stone walling.

Course description: In the Cotswolds we pride ourselves on the fact that on our walling courses you will be making a dry-stone wall built to last! Unlike some other courses in the UK, where trainees simply take down and rebuild the same piece of wall over and over again, on our courses you will be building a wall that will remain part of the Cotswolds landscape for the next 100-200 years!

Enrol on one of our courses and spend an enjoyable weekend surrounded by a beautiful landscape. On the intermediate course you can expect to learn about: cheek ends of dry stone walls, advanced principles of dry stone walling, dry stone walling on a slope, curved dry stone walls and much more!

What do you need to know: To book onto the intermediate course you must already have taken the beginners dry stone walling course or have previous experience of dry stone walling.

Instructor: Jonathan Bendle is a self-employed landscape gardener, dry stone walling specialist and instructor. He has been teaching dry stone walling and lime mortar courses for many years. As well as teaching courses for the Cotswolds Conservation Board he also teaches at the Royal Agricultural College and Wiltshire Wildlife Trust.

What to bring on the day: All tools and materials will be provided, although you are welcome to bring your own walling hammer and gloves. You will need to bring: appropriate clothing, hard wearing footwear and a packed lunch.
