Walling withTrevor

For the last 18 months or so I have been very fortunate to have worked alongside Trevor Wragg, one of Derbyshire and the UK's Master Craftsmen.

Trevor has been walling for most of his life and has a wealth of knowledge , not only about walls but about Derbyshire rural life and our local countryside. He also has a good few tales of local life too making a working day enjoyable and interesting.
Through Trevor I have experienced different walls, stone and techniques which has been a great boost to my overall experience as a waller.
Trevor is in the process of retiring and I shall miss him enormously but know that he will continue walling as long as he can lift a stone!
Trevor has appeared on TV and is also known as Trevor the weather!

As a member of the Derbyshire Dry Walling Association I attended the Chatsworth Show where we built a beautiful wall commemorating the wallers who left the hills and Dales to fight in WW1

Features

Here are some lovely features Trevor and I have been putting in garden walls this summer A wall we have just finished where we repositioned and reset the name of the property and put in a postbox. (Trevor built the front of this wall)

Chatsworth

Just returned from a lovely weekend at Chatsworth Show with our local branch of the DSWA (Dry Stone Walling Association)  DDSWA It's a great meeting of Derbyshire wallers of all abilities from beginners to master craftsmen, professionals to amateurs and hobby wallers. We always build a new feature which stays in situ for a year. This year we built a straight wall of around 7-8m with a wheel, cantilevered seats, hog holes or sheep creeps and other small niches. It's also a great opportunity to promote walling and the  beginners courses  that we run throughout the year.
