The Art of Dry Stone Walling

by User Not Found | Apr 07, 2017

Dry stone walling can be seen all over the country. Some is old and some is freshly constructed. Our builders insurance covers the construction of dry stone walling.

Building dry stone walling can be traced back for three and a half millennia to the Iron Age, according to the Dry Stone Walling Association of Great Britain (DSWA).

Built without cement or mortar, such wall building requires great skill. They were built all over the country where stone was plentiful but trees were not, and today they are used more in creative landscaping than in fencing off land.

If you head to the northwestern parts of the country such as the Lake District, dry stone walls are plentiful, and so is the restoration needed to them. Winship Walling suggests that there are 69,926 miles of dry stone wall in England alone, of which 38% is showing major signs of deterioration.
