Given the current Coronavirus outbreak the DSWA Trustee Board has taken the difficult decision to suspend all DSWA events, courses and activities until the end of June.  We all need to help contain the spread of the virus and the safety of our members and participants is paramount. Thank you for your understanding. Stay safe and well. Read more

The Dry Stone Walling Association (DSWA), in conjunction with The Prince’s Countryside Fund, is planning a ‘Wallathon’ to repair some of the damage caused to dry stone walls by flooding.

Working with farmers in the Yorkshire Dales to restore some of the 3,500m of walls that have been damaged by floods, the Wallathon takes place 23-24 May.

Volunteers to help in the project are being called for. Everyone is welcome, whether they are members of the DSWA or not. The aim is to rebuild 250m of dry stone walling during the weekend.

To take part you must register with the DSWA so a ‘stint’ can be allocated and prepared for you. Phone or email: 01539 567953 / [email protected].

The first ‘Wallathon’ to help repair last year’s flood damage was held in October. There has been more rain and more flooding since then.
