Attended an excellent Dry Stone Walling Course at Edge Hill Farm, Dobcross, Oldham and I was amazed to find how much I learnt and the level of enjoyment of helping to build a section of wall. The instructors and wallers were supportive and directed the team of students in a manner that enabled everyone to feel a sense of success and achievement. I would recommend this course to people of varying abilities, but advise that you need to be prepared to do lots of lifting over the two days.

Went with our daughter and her partner in a small group of 4. Had a very enjoyable and productive day. Amazed what we all managed between us to achieve, namely 2 substantial , sturdy, and attractive walls with coping stones on top and a seat to rest on.
John Holt was thrilled to share all his passion for the walls and we all sat down for a nice lunch together I the sun. Would recommend as a complete step out from what we all usually do. Great fun and satisfying when you find the right piece which matches. The jigsaw analogy fits well.
Hand-outs were clear and helpful. One day I will build a raised bed with seats as a project. shame we could not bring them home.
Oh, and the history of the site was intriguing, too, with a lovely carved wood canopy gateway.

Really enjoyed my one day course with John Holt, despite blazing sunshine which made lifting stone heavy going! It's remarkable how much information John managed to impart in one day, all in an easy, anecdotal fashio
