Dry stone Walling Association—Traditional Boundaries Project
Throughout the Pendle area you can see the patchwork of field boundaries stretching up from the valley floors towards the steep slopes of the hillside. Traditional dry stone walls and hedgerows have stood the test of time but they do require maintenance and as part of the Traditional Boundaries Project we will be running courses in dry stone walling and hedgelaying. Why not come along and try your hand at these traditional skills, you could even work towards a qualification or maybe even a new career. To find out more follow this link.
