The Northumbria Branch of the Dry Stone Walling Association was formed in 1993 and actively promotes the aims of the association; namely the preservation of Dry Stone Walls throughout Great Britain and the training of people in the craft of dry stone walling.
The branch holds “introduction to dry stone walling” taster days locally throughout the year and has demonstrations at most of the region’s agricultural shows.
The branch has members from all over Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and Durham and meets 6 times a year in the Church Cottage (Hall), Riding Mill.
