Heritage Lottery Fund Project

As part of our mission to advance training in the craft of dry stone walling and conserve, protect and improve the built landscape, the Dry Stone Walling Association (DSWA) has applied to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a grant to establish a cohesive training structure to enhance career prospects in dry stone walling, thereby offering income opportunities whilst maintaining the landscape for future generations to enjoy.

The Association has been successful in securing first round funding to develop a Built Landscape Heritage Education & Training Project.
