Whether you just want to learn a new skill or you are ready for a career change, you will find plenty of information on our courses on the Training Pages. Our Branch network throughout the UK offers mainly beginner courses where you can learn the basics of dry stone walling. For those who want to develop their skills with a view to a career change or gaining qualifications there are Residential Courses held at our National Training Site near Kendal.

If you are keen to learn more about the craft of dry stone walling and our landscape heritage, have a look at our Education Pages. In the Discovery Centre you will find fun games for the children and example lessons for teachers, together with a wealth of information and articles about this traditional craft and its role in our built landscape heritage. Our Photographic Project has a vast archive of photographs and facts about interesting dry stone walling features in the landscape. This project, funded for North West England by the Heritage Lottery Fund, will be extended to cover the whole of the UK.
