Our stonework division encompasses dry stone walling, wet walling, pointing, facing and the building of structural retaining walls for domestic, commercial and agricultural clients. We have a large, skilled and experienced team, allowing us to undertake contracts of any size.

Agricultural Dry Stone Walling

We undertake large and small contracts for private landowners, farmers and land agents, ranging from just a few metres of gapping through to lengths of over 1000 metres.

Decorative Dry Stone Walling

Incorporating projects in domestic and semi-domestic settings to create structural walls that are aesthetically pleasing.

This large-scale project, undertaken in conjunction with English Heritage, involved the rebuilding of an historic green walk. This incorporated building decorative dry stone retaining walls, dressing new top stones and blending in new quarried stone with stones that were reclaimed on site.

The owners of this property wanted to create a beautiful landscaped garden out of an area that had formerly served as a carpark. The team worked to create a pleasing array of dry stone retaining walls, beds and this lovely pond and water feature.



We offer a full range of facing services, including a pointed finish and dry wall. We have experience in using many different stone types to create the required look.


All pointing work from minor repairs to full re-pointing of a property using both heritage materials or standard cement-based mortars as the project demands.

Retaining Walls

We have extensive experience in building structural retaining walls; whether they are traditional dry stone retaining walls or stone faced concrete retaining walls.

Wet Walling

Our skilled craftsmen build pointed wet walls using a variety of stone types. We can offer a masonry and pointing matching service if replacement materials are needed.

Our brief with this project was to remove a large coniferous hedge, and replace it with a high wet wall. This involved the removal of the tree roots, laying of foundations and the construction and pointing of the wall.
