I'm headed to The Stone Trust in Vermont (5/26 -29/2014) to become Maryland's first Certified Instructor by the Dry Stone Walling Association of UK. I look forward to the opportunity to offer workshops in the near future at Meadow Creek Farm Located in Hampstead MD.
The Stone Trust offers courses and testing in the craft of dry laid stone all year round. Take a look at their website: www.TheStoneTrust.org
While I'm up in Vermont I plan to document a few of the wallers on video and also travel to see the Five Dry Laid Stone Arch Bridges in NH still in use today!
1) Carr Bridge (mid 1800's)
2) Gleason Falls Bridges (circa 1830)
3) Gleason Falls Road over Beard's Brook (mid 1800's)
4) Second New Hampshire Turnpike Bridge (circa 1864)
5) Sawyer Bridge (circa 1866)
