Walling skills go back to the future

Join us this weekend for a chance to learn a traditional Moorlands craft - and leave your mark on the landscape for the next 80 years.

Staffordshire Moorlands District Council has teamed up with a professional dry stone waller and trainer to offer you the chance to learn how to build and repair walls.

The two-day course, aimed at people with no prior experience, is taking place at Biddulph Grange Country Park on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 September and places are allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Councillor Mike Bowen, cabinet member for leisure, parks and countryside at Staffordshire Moorlands District Council, said: "Dry stone walls are such a distinctive part of Moorlands landscapes and this is a great opportunity to learn how they're built and give it a go yourself.

"There's more to well built walls than meets the eye and this course, with an experienced waller, offers a hands-on chance to try your hand at this heritage craft and then admire your work for years and years to come.

"It's a course that fills up fast so make sure you don't miss out by booking your place today!"

The course costs £50 and you can secure your place by calling 01538 395522.
