I attended the 17th&18th August walling weekend at Ridge Farm, Diggle. All I can say is sign up and give it a go!! The weekend was amazing. The course instructors, and voluntary members, were awesome, super friendly and taught everyone well and without prejudice. I now fully intend to join as a member of the DSWA association and build on what I have learnt over this weekend. I am so proud of our wall!! Well done all who attended!!

A thoroughly enjoyable weekend. Hard work both physically & mentally (like a very taxing jigsaw puzzle!) however there is now a beautiful stretch of dry-stone wall above Stalybridge which I helped to construct. Thank you all for your patience, good humour & encouragement (Paul, you know who I'm referring to!)

What a great way to spend a weekend. The team and instructors were great - informative, helpful, entertaining and skilled wallers with lots of patience and encouragement for us beginners. They were welcoming and friendly from the beginning and throughout. It was a great way to get an insight into an ancient craft, and satisying to take part. Beautiful setting at Gorse Hall

I cannot recommend this course too much. It was fascinating and also quite comforting, building a real wall - actually accomplishing something - out in the fresh air and lovely countryside and to learn how these things are put together. We had an excellent tutor and other members of the DSWA group joined in, all very friendly and supportive of our novice efforts to find the right rock in the rock pile and find the right place for it in the wall. Thank you for a great weekend.

A splendid course, with a real and lasting outcome. We transformed a higgledy-piggledy broken down wall into a magnificent adornment to the landscape. A highly recommended way to expend a weekend!

What a satisfying way to spend the weekend. Felt like I was doing something worthwhile and totally enjoyed the process. All I thought about whilst I was there was building that wall. I shall be joining the DSWA, buying my own hammer and spending a day a month absorbed in my new hobby. The team were great and the teaching excellent.

What an excellent two days covering how to build a wall from scratch. There was plenty of hands on instruction from people who are obviously passionate about the art of dry stone walling. If you're thinking about taking this course then stop right now and just do it, you won't be disappointed.

A thoroughly enjoyable weekend in great company with excellent instruction. Every time I walk along this section of wall I will have the immense satisfaction in knowing that I helped to build it - I've already joined the Dry Stone Walling Association!
