We are one of the largest branches of the DSWA based in and around the town of Otley in West Yorkshire. We also have an active group that meet regularly in and around Leyburn, North Yorkshire.
As a registered charity, our aims are to promote and encourage the craft of dry stone walling through training courses, talks and demonstrations. We also occasionally take on larger projects demonstrating what can be achieved using dry stone walling techniques.
We also have a number of members who are professional wallers, several of whom are qualified to Master Craftsman level, and several who are qualified trainers and run the several courses we advertise each year.
In 2013 we ran our first open walling competition on Otley Chevin. This was so successful we plan to run a similar competition in 2014.
