Cambo Training Weekend

The second visit of the year to Cambo was the last of our Beginners Training Courses in Dry Stone Walling for 2018. 

Calum Williams, instructor for the event, led an enthusiastic group of nine trainees during a rather cold September weekend.

From ‘First Lift’ to ‘Copes’, below you can see the different stages of construction we teach on our beginners training course.
