A network of walls, easily three or four miles long and at least a hundred years old, crisscrosses this area of beautiful rolling farmland and is an important feature of this property, which now is a stately 200 hectare provincial park.
Over the weekend, we are offering a hands-on beginner's dry stone walling course led by Sean Donnelly, recently Level III certified, and by special arrangement, a Members’ session for any association member who would like additional walling practice as follow up to a previous workshop. Akira Inam will be leading the member’s group.
The student course will cover important walling elements such as hearting, batter, through-stones, cheek ends, corners, and various types of coping. Participants will learn the basic techniques of dry laid construction including stiles and various structural solutions to carry out sympathetic repair of historic stone walls.

Note: If you do not wish to camp over the weekend, a list of B&B accommodation in the town of Campbellford is available on request. Participants are encouraged to make their own arrangements with local operators as soon as possible.
