Here is Devon, sandwiched between Dartmoor and the sea, we have a tradition of building living stone walls. These are the Devon stone faced banks out of which grows the Devon hedges.

They consist of and earth bank, faced with the local stone, often collected from the fields they enclose. We have some hedges with stone faced devon banks here at The Husbandry School that have a history going back to Neolithic ages, with few gaps in maintenance along the way!

On this course

Devon stone face walling is a skill worth knowing.

The main purpose of the course is to equip you with the knowledge and confidence to build a stone faced structure. It need not be limited to walls or boundaries, how about a sculpture or terrace in your garden?

The principle aim is to give you as much ‘hands-on’ experience as possible.

Course summary
• A short, illustrated introduction to the history and traditions of stone-walling
• What tools you need
• A practical demonstration on how to choose and lay stone, starting from scratch
• How to maintain your wall or structure once it’s up

Course numbers are restricted to a maximum of 10 people so there will be plenty of time for your questions and one-to-one attention.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided from produce grown at the Husbandry School, naturally.
