Dry Stone Wall on the Northumberland CoastDry stone walling is an ancient craft using only stone with no mortar to build them. Dry stone walls are a culturally important human contribution to the landscape and the craftsmanship used to build Drystone walls and buildings has developed for thousands of years - from the buildings of Newgrange in Ireland, the Brochs of the Celts, and around the world from Egypt, Japan and South America to the turf walls of Iceland. The craft is now being utilised in sculpture and modern buildings where its character and strong visual impact is reaching a new audience.
