Drystane Dykes Demonstration

Lead Partner:
SW Scotland Dry Stone Walling Assoc.

Research and recording of local dyking styles and construction of a demonstration dyke on Threave Estate incorporating the different styles. The different dykes of the area form significant features in the local landscape, and the activities of the Galloway Levellers in the 18th Century add a unique level of interest to this subject.

Status: Demonstration day planned at Threave Estate in October 2019. More details closer to the time.
