Drystone Walling Demonstration
Humans have lived in the Yorkshire Dales National Park for more than 12,000 years. Their activity shaped the valleys, rivers and hills, creating the pattern of villages, farmsteads, pastures, meadows and moorlands that we see today.
Remains from history survive because of pastoral farming in the last 300 years, including the amazing pattern of isolated farm buildings and dry stone walls.
Join Dales Volunteers as they showcase the traditional craft of drystone walling and explain the construction of this iconic feature of the National Park landscape. Included in museum admission.
