Wall calendars for 2023

Wall callendars

For those who like to have a wall calendar with a new picture each month, here's a couple that you might like to have on your wall.

For those of us who still like to have a calendar on the wall giving us a new photograph to look at each month as we keep track of the days, a couple you might like to consider come from the Building Conservation Directory and the Dry Stone Walling Association.

The Building Conservation Directory is celebrating its 30th year this year and the calendar is helping to remind those involved in the heritage sector to get their entries in for the special 30th edition of the Directory. Each month comes with a photograph of a beast, many of them carved or sculpted, although some (like the one on the cover) are stained glass. It kicks off in January with a picture of the sanctuary knocker at Durham Cathedral, which is actually a copy of the original knocker.

The Dry Stone Walling Association's calendar has examples of modern and historical walling, starting with a photograph from Chris Bolshaw of a shelter wall for sheep at a farm in Lancashire, complete with sheep in a snowy landscape.

It is not too late to get them for your office for the New Year. They each cost £8. The Dry Stone Walling calendar is available from the Association's online shop (click here to visit the shop) and the Conservation Directory calendar is available from Cathedral Communications.
