We've recently provided dry stone walling demonstrations at Gardening Scotland and the Haddington Agricultural Show in East Lothian. We used the same stone, mostly field stone, for both demos (many thanks to Bruce for the loan).
At Gardening Scotland we built a corner, leaving the open ends half built to show the internals of the wall.
There was quite a lot of interest in our courses and dry stone walling in general.
We had a smaller space at the Haddington Show, so we just built a short section of wall - again left open at the end to show the structure.
Our demo wall was featured in the article on the show published in this weeks East Lothian Courier - seems this is me showing the skill of building a dry stone wall (the caption reads) ... don't know why Dave is apparently laughing at my efforts, it was mainly him (and Richard) that built it ...
