The landscape of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) depends on people who live and work here possessing traditional rural skills so that they can help conserve the area, but with increasing migration of workers to towns and cities, the number of people who have these skills is in decline.
The Cotswolds Conservation Board works to reverse this decline by supporting rural skills such as drystone walling. We do this in a number of ways:
- By running two-day drystone walling courses across the summer
- By holding an Annual Drystone Walling Competition
