Event description

Description

A practical intermediate wall-building course over 2 days, working with a local master craftsman, Mike Thwaites. This course will focus on the construction of 'Hecks', Water Yeats or water gates and is suitable for those who have a basic dry stone walling knowledge and skill and are wanting to improve. It will be based out in the field for both days.

You will need stout waterproof footwear, ideally steel toe-caps, waterproof clothing and warm layers. Bring a packed lunch, drinking water and a flask with you each day. Please note, as the wall is very close to a small stream, waterproof footwear is essential as the day may involve standing in the stream!

The location is north of the village of Bouth on the road to Hay Bridge Nature Reserve. Grid ref: SD332863. Meet there at 10am.
