Contest goes to the wall and there's limited time to enter

Yorkshire wallers have until 30 June to enter this year's Dry Stone Wall competition.

Country Land and Business Association regional director Dorothy Fairburn said: “There are still a few places remaining in the competition. I would urge any dry stone wallers, who have been involved in a local project in the last two years, to enter now before it’s too late.”

Aimed at preserving the county’s ancient craft of dry stone walling, the competition, which is stagbed every two years, recognises the people behind the miles of distinctive walls that define Yorkshire’s famous landscapes.

The event is held in association with the Yorkshire Dry Stone Walling Guild and is believed to be unique in Britain as it judges new or rebuilt walls in the countryside.

Marks are awarded for use of local style, impact on the landscape, tidiness and difficulty of terrain.

The winner receives an engraved glass walling stone. The competition is open to all wallers who live and work in Yorkshire and is free to enter. Entry forms are available by emailing: or telephoning: 01748 907070.
