Award Schemes

The Dry Stone Walling Association operates two award schemes, which are available for members and non-members to apply for at any time throughout the year.

The Pinnacle Award Scheme

The Pinnacle Award Scheme recognises outstanding projects that incorporate the very best of dry stone walling craftsmanship.

A summary of each project will be available shortly.


The Ronnie Ball Award

The Ronnie Ball Award is for young people up to and including the age of 25. This Award commemorates the work of Ronnie Ball, who was a life-long supporter of the Dry Stone Walling Association, and of the craft of dry stone walling. He was very keen to encourage the practical involvement of young people in the craft.
