The Branch is regularly asked to give walling demonstrations at local agricultural shows. These include the Otley Show, the Young Farmers Show at Pateley Bridge, the Great Yorkshire Show at Harrogate and the annual Dales Festival of Food and Drink at Leyburn.
The events help us to promote the Dry Stone Walling Association in general, and our Branch activities in particular.
As a traditional country craft dry stone walling attracts a great deal of interest and appreciation from the general public. These walls are very much a part of the Yorkshire landscape and heritage.
Many new recruits are first attracted to our organisation through these events.
