Drystone Walling on the Calf of Man

Type:Outdoor

Drystone Walling on the Calf of Man

About

The Isle of Man has a fine tradition of drystone walling and this short course will be an excellent opportunity for attendees to gain basic drystone walling skills in the wonderful setting of the Calf of Man.

Led by David Fisher and Pat Griffiths, experienced drystone wallers who have been responsible for rebuilding many drystone walls on the Calf, the course will be a hands-on opportunity to gain experience and confidence in drystone walling techniques.

Included in the package is your return boat journey from Port St Mary via the seabird colonies at Sugarloaf, along with 5 night's self-catering hostel standard accommodation in the 1878 Calf of Man farmhouse where the Bird Observatory is located.

Accommodation is limited and course participants must be aged 18 years and over. The accommodation consists of either a 2 or a 4 bed bunk room. Single bookings are available and we will assign rooms based on others of the same gender.

Participants are encouraged to cater communally for their main meal where possible and with the agreement of those applying for the course, contact details of attendees will be shared in advance to allow meals to be planned and any dietary requirements or allergies to be confirmed.

In addition to the course there will also be ample opportunity for individuals to explore the Calf and see its historical features and natural beauty at your own leisure.
