Simon will help you learn the basics of this ancient and beautiful natural form of walling. He will guide you in the skills you need to tackle your own project with confidence.

Under his expert eye, have the satisfaction of finishing your own stretch of dry stone wall here at Ashton Park. If you are like me and already have some experience, this is the chance to improve further. Enjoy a delicious lunch in the Barn. Learn from this master-artisan as he shares his love of this beautiful ancient art-form.

What you can expect:
Be welcomed to Ashton Park with scones, tea and coffee, while Simon takes us through the plan for the day.

Have an overview of the theory and technique, before donning the gloves and heading through the orchard and kitchen garden to the paddock.

Under Simon’s instruction, work in pairs on your own stretch of the wall.  Simon will show us how to make solid foundations and keep to a nice straight line as we add height to the wall.

After a delicious lunch in the Barn, head back to the wall to review progress, and place some finishing touches on your segment.

Finish the day with a reviving drink and go home inspired and confident to tackle some of the ideas you have for your own home.

However, it’s not much fun in wet weather!  Therefore, we will decide the day before if the weather looks dodgy, and you can reschedule or be refunded if it’s too wet.

I had a ball. And I’ve managed to avoid months – maybe even years – of trial and error to build my own dry stone wall.

Thanks Peta!
