  • Drystone Walling

    Drystone walls first appeared in North West Europe in the Neolithic age and the traditional building technique has been used ever since throughout the world. The walls can be made from slate, granite or other types of stone. Unlike brick walls, the drystone wall contains no mortar and earth is used to bind the stones together. This means that it is more durable and held together by the weight of the stone, and the skill of the builder who needs to select and fit the stones together.
