Rock of ages, cleft for me An insight into the history, craft and splendour of dry stone walling. Dry stone wall near Askrigg, Yorkshire Dales. My earliest memory of dry stone walls comes from when I was about 8 years old, when on holiday in the Yorkshire Dales; I found a baby shrew sat on a stone protruding out of one of the dry stone walls near to where we were having a picnic.
I was told by my mother that it probably lived in the wall, and I was puzzled and transfixed as to how an animal could actually live in the middle of a wall. Many birds too, such as the robin, wheatear and redstart, and the occasional small owl, have been known to occupy larger gaps, with mosses, lichens and ferns favouring the outside of the walls. I vaguely recollect asking my mother lots of other related questions, such as how the walls managed to stand up what with all the gaps in them, where all the stone came from to build them, who built them, and why they were built in the first place.
The fact they were built a long, long time ago, and the animals and plants made the wall their home, or used them as hiding places from predators, was about all I remember from my early questions. Brown hare on dry stone wall, Peak District. Image courtesy of Benjamin Andrews via Flickr. So much so that I went on a couple of dry stone walling courses to learn how to make them myself. Anyone who can remember watching the TV series All Creatures Great and Small in the s and s will have an idea, but you really need to visit the Yorkshire Dales to appreciate the beauty.
Upper Swaledale, Yorkshire Dales. The beauty, improvisation and simplicity of building a structure made from locally available stone, and nothing else, by arranging the stones in a particular pattern so that they lock themselves together to create a solid structure that can last for hundreds of years, is shared by many; certainly judging by the amount of Royal Horticultural Society medals that have been won in show gardens recently where dry stone walling has been a key feature.

I say half-forgotten because Robson has since gone on to forge himself a career in the media after subsequent playing and coaching spells at West Ham, Coventry and elsewhere. Given that both institutions require the parents of entrants to pay fees to attend, at the time this constituted a rare case of a British footballer with a privately educated background. Stretching back to the nineteenth century, it has been a sport for the ordinary man with the Saturday afternoon-long opportunity provided by the temporary closure of the cotton mills, steelworks and dockyards allowing the activity to take its place in the weekly calendar.
Indeed — and most peculiarly — Derby County are currently fielding no less than two privately educated players and not insignificant ones either.

Derbyshire is situated to the north east of the midlands of England. The scenery is varied, both dramatic and gentle, with the Pennine Hills and part of the National Forest within the County. The Derbyshire Dales are renowned for their beauty, lovely river valleys and fascinating caves, which were worked by the Romans for lead – today some are still quarried for limestone. The County town is Derby , which only gained city status in , but has a long and interesting history.
There are many interesting attractions and good shopping facilities in the city. Derbyshire Tourist Information centres are in all the main towns in the county. The Peak district in the north of the County offers dramatic scenery, with high rocky crags rising from heather covered moorland. Edale in the heart of the region is the beginning of the Pennine Way. Walkers, potholers and climbers will appreciate the adventurous terrain of the Peak District.
Derbyshire Tourism has since early times focused upon Buxton, a spa town famous for its spring water. Buxton is one of the highest towns in England at over 1, feet, but sheltered by the even higher surrounding hills, making it one of the most popular inland holiday resorts in the country. Under the castle lies one of the finest underground caverns in the area – Peak Cavern.

The last pole lathe turner in England An interview with England’s last full-time pole lathe wood turner, Robin Wood. So, we were thrilled to have had the pleasure of meeting Robin at his workshop in Edale, to understand his craft, where he draws his inspiration from, and his thoughts on wood turning and, as Chairman of The Heritage Crafts Association, the future of traditional British craft in general. About Robin Wood Based in the Derbyshire Peak District, Robin Wood is an internationally respected wood worker who creates one-of-a-kind bowls and platters by hand, using local timbers and traditional techniques but with a distinctive modern twist.
Whilst working in woodland conservation for the National Trust, clearing and replanting woodlands in Kent after the storm, Robin became fascinated by the craft, and inspired by British and Scandinavian techniques, set about reviving the technique of bowl making using a pole lathe, first learning the blacksmithing skills required to forge the specialised turning tools.
Rather than merely making bowls as ornaments for the sole purpose of displaying spectacular colours and grain patterns in wood, Robin makes pieces that are down-to-earth and unpretentious, created to be cherished for generations, intended to develop a patina that can only be formed by regular use and handling. Image courtesy of Robin Wood Robin is passionate about traditional British crafts, and is currently the Chairman of the Heritage Crafts Association, a body set up to provide a focus for all people who care about the loss of traditional skills to provide a sustainable framework for the future.
Robin is also a published author, having written The Wooden Bowl, the first authoritative account of the history of the wooden bowl dating back 4, years. Robin also makes individually hand-crafted benches, stiles, bridges and other countryside furniture and runs spoon and bowl carving courses from his workshop in the Peak District. I have been a full-time professional wood carver since

We lost many footballs and tennis balls that year, as the blanket ban on disturbing the archaeology remained in force. Looking back nearly 20 years later as a professional archaeologist, the significance of the those excavations remains strong, Anyone who studies Anglo-Saxon archaeology or church archaeology will have heard of Repton, Martin Biddle and Birthe Kjolbye-Biddle.
This is not a site report on the Repton excavations. It is to show to my generation of Reptonians what was going on under those covers and sheets, and hopefully explain why we could never retrieve our tennis balls. To those not of our generation this article is intended to demonstrate the archaeological significance of Repton School, and what the discoveries there have meant. There are many aspects of Repton School that imply some antiquity.
