Padiham, Burnley

Traditional Dry Stone Wall Fence

The field wall project in Padiham near Burnley was commissioned by the Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership Scheme (PHLPS). The opportunity arose due to the links and collaboration between the PHLPS and the Dry Stone Walling Association’s (DSWA).

At 140 metres long, this project required me to really settle into it and treat it as a long term engagement.

A good 75% of the dry stone wall had collapsed a long time ago. As a result, the grass and other greens had totally buried the stone, helped by the gradual accumulation of soil as it washed off the field over the decades. The mattock, thus became a staple tool as the stone had to be dug out sometimes for up to 2 metres way from the walling line.

Being a field wall on a working farm, meant working along the livestock and sometimes the wildlife which roam amongst the woods and hedge rows. A real cool place to spend a few months of the year and watch the seasons come and pass.

A big shout out and thank you to the wallers who helped on this project.
