What is dry stone walling?
Dry stone, sometimes called drystack or, in Scotland, drystane, is a building method by which structures are constructed from stones without any mortar to bind them together.

Dry stone structures are stable because of their unique construction method, which is characterised by the presence of a load-bearing façade of carefully selected interlocking stones. Dry stone construction is best known in the context of stone walls, traditionally used for the boundaries of fields and churchyards, or as retaining walls for terracing, but dry stone sculptures, buildings, bridges, and other structures also exist.

It is a traditional and ancient craft and it has been employed in the Cotswolds, Stroud and Gloucestershire and surrounding areas since Neolithic times.
