Durlston Country Park Dry Stone Walling Working Party

Date(s) - 14/10/2021
10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Activity: The weekly Thursday Dry Stone Walling Work Party is great chance to get outdoors, learn a new skill, get fitter and have fun, with a friendly and varied group of other volunteers in the beautiful coast and countryside of Durlston.

Following the ancient craft of dry-stone walling volunteers help us to maintain over six miles of dry-stone wall across the Country Park, as well as reinstating the Victorian woodland walls.

Tasks are available for all ages and abilities, with equipment and training provided – just be prepared to get muddy!! 

A Dorset Council Ranger is always on hand to make sure you get the most out of the morning, and will help you get to grips with what’s required. Volunteers range from 16 years old up to 80+ years old and you can do as much or as little as you like.

Suggested things to bring: Bring waterproofs (coats), suitable walking footwear and old clothes which you don’t mind getting mucky in! Tea, coffee (and usually cake!) is provided.

Cost: Free
