About this book

This book is an approachable and fascinating look at the traditional craft of dry stone walling. Written in plain language, it offers a practical guide to the techniques used in different parts of the country and gives background detail which explains the simple principles involved and shows why walls have developed in their own characteristic ways.
Whether you are wishing to build walls of your own, to employ a professional or simply to increase your knowledge of this timeless feature of the British countryside, this book will provide you with guidance and inspiration.

From repairing a gap in your own boundary wall you could well progress to designing complex garden features and even, if you become deeply involved, building some of them yourself. If your interest lies within a more leisurely lifestyle you could simply gain the knowledge to enhance your enjoyment of walks and holidays.

Produced by the Dry Stone Walling Association, the only body in Britain dedicated solely to the support and development of this fascinating craft, this book will become an important source of reference.
