Dry stone walling is one of the oldest of countryside crafts, and these attractive structures form one of the most striking features of the rural landscape, whether on upland pasture, fell or moorland.

The author looks into the history of dry stone walling before demonstrating how to build a wall with step-by-step explanations accompanied by photographs and diagrams.

Topics include: how to acquire suitable stone; tools of the trade; basic walling technique; building or repairing a curved wall; walling on slopes and gapping, retaining walls and variations.
