Walling Courses

We have had a great run of courses with the Derbyshire DSWA and whilst they have to spread their skills with other sites, we are pleased to have them return for 2 more weekends this year.

Call Alan Malia at DSWA on 01246 280914 for detail or www.derbyshire-dswa.org.uk.

2017 – Novice weekend 11+12 March.  We welcome back the Derbyshire and Cheshire branches for a members joint practice weekend on July 22+23 2017.

2016 – Successful Novice weekend 12+13 March.  Great joint weekend with Cheshire branch completing over 20m of limestone high wall – July 30+31.

2015 – Just one Novice weekend – March 14+15.

2014 – This year over 45m of wall was rebuilt to a high standard by novices on training courses.

2013 has been another great year for the DSWA at Bushey Heath Farm, we look forward to more courses next year.

2012 – Members weekend August Bank Holiday – fabulous ‘s’ curve created in the workyard entrance.  Finishes off the many features, step & squeeze style, cheeky ends, lunky and free curves that are displayed in that stretch of wall.

2011 – Five course ran this year, loads of great walls done

2010 – Members Weekend 25/26 September 2010 – great weekend, the weather held off and a great stretch of wall 25m ish was completed with the two new Bee Boles.  The Bee Skeps are in place and next year we hope to look at colonising them with a couple of bee colonies.

A weekends hard work – well done all!

Thanks to all for a brilliant weekend with a fabulous feature wall.   Thanks to all who attended and to Lisa for the catering!

There has been enormous stretches of wall completed since 2008 – thanks to all members and trainees.
