Text from Producer:

Stone has long been used in building Britain’s boundaries, and now a vast network of dry stone walls criss-crosses the landscape. In this programme, writer and broadcaster Dylan Winter traces the origins of stone wall building and meets the new generation of professional wallers.

Master craftsman waller Stephen Harrison and the Yorkshire Dales Field Centre hold regular courses for groups of beginners. Dylan learns from Stephen the basics of walling against the inspiring backdrops of the Dales. Sculptor Andy Goldsworthy also shows how he has developed dry stone walling into an art form.

This DVD draws on examples of walling from Scotland, the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and south Wales, showing regional variations and associated flora and fauna. Whether you are interested in walls as a countryside feature or in adapting the skills for your garden, this programme will instruct and inspire.
