Dry stone walling stone - flat, hard and easy to build

Natural stone walls

Our traditional dry stone walling stone is ideal for building impressive stable structures such as walls, retaining walls, ha-has, and generally adding presence to any property.  

 

The drystone walling stone is hard, impermeable, frost resistant and largely flat, with plenty of natural faces on the uncut sides.  Each stone is hand selected, and dressed, enabling the stone masons to build a tight jointed stable wall fast.   

 

The drystone walling will have many large pieces enabling large stable structures to be built.  However for those wanting smaller garden walls to be built, garden walling can be purchased that is at a smaller bed width of 10 inches, or as specified. 

 

In Dorset, Somerset, as well as in the Cotswolds - Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and Northamptonshire, there are some superb examples of dry stone walling with Forest Marble stone. From Burford, to Badminton, to Bruton, to Bridport the Forest Marble dry stone walls have created idyllic rural landscapes. Today our walling stone is being used throughout the UK creating natural structures for gardens, farms and estates. 

 

Depending on the stone wall to be built, we are able to advise on a suitable dry stone waller. There are multiple styles and traditions of building stone walls and so it is important to utilise a stone waller that will build a stone wall to suit the ground, and last 200 years plus.
