Dry Stone Walling Association - Cheshire Branch Registered Charity 289678
A Walker Jones Design
The Cheshire Branch runs at least two training courses
each year for beginners.
The courses are held at weekends and enable beginners
to receive instruction from qualified wallers.
The current cost of a course is £100.00 per person , or £85.00
when enrolled within 10 days of a show, or £50.00 under the
age of 25 for the two days.
Course gift vouchers can be
purchased and can be redeemed later in the year.
You will need to take a packed lunch, drinks, wear good all
weather clothing, strong footwear and a pair of strong
gloves. All tools will be provided.
During the two days we aim to cover stripping out an existing
wall, grading the stone, setting out walling pins and lines,
preparation of foundations, wall building including foundations,
first lift, through stones, second lift and coping stones. Armed
with this basic knowledge you will be in a position to build
your own wall but to improve much practice will be needed.
Both courses this year will be held at Werneth Low Country Park, Hyde, SK14 5LR
Full joining instructions will be emailed to the the Trainee two weeks prior to the
of the Training Course.
11th & 12th May 2019.
14th & 15th September 2019
