#020 Dry Stone Walling with David Edwards

In todays episode Susan talks to David Edwards who is a master dry stone waller and landscape gardener. David is the owner of Northern Walls & Landscapes. A Master Waller, David belongs to the Guild of Master Craftsmen as well as the Yorkshire Dry Stone Walling Guild.

About the Guest:

David learned to build dry stone walls at the age of 16 when he was working down the pits. Walls were used to support the coal seams whilst the miners worked down there...a hard life for a young lad.

David has had a variety of other jobs since then, however his building expertise has created a flourishing business. He creates and maintains the dry stone walls that define the characteristic dales scenery. He also works as a landscape gardener, out in all weathers, with no two days the same.
