I am a traditional dry stone waller, working and living in the south Lakeland area of Cumbria. Connection with landscape, purity of craft, and longevity have always been integral to my work. Needing no costly binding materials and only a hammer, a shovel and a string, dry stone walling holds all of these attributes. From simple field gap repairs to large contemporary projects; a sense of place within time, tradition and location is intrinsic to the building of dry stone structure.
Working on the land since 2010, I am experienced in working with the elements of nature to create works of strength, beauty and timelessness. Learning the craft of dry stone walling whilst running a coppicing business, it became clear that stone work carried greater inspiration. Having worked closely with national conservation organisations, garden designers and private land owners, I have a thorough understanding of the various intricacies of a wide variety of projects. I am a professional member of the Dry Stone Walling Association and a qualified Dry Stone Walling Association tutor.
