Introduction

Here in the Cotswolds, traditional skills such as dry-stone walling, hedgelaying and woodland coppicing have played an important role in moulding the distinctive and unique landscape that we see around us today.

Unfortunately, the significant change in land management practices over the past century has resulted in many of these features being left neglected and falling into disrepair.

That's why here at the Cotswolds Conservation Board, we run an annual programme of training courses aimed at teaching people the methods and techniques involved in these traditional Cotswold skills.  Now, in our 7th year of running a rural skills programme, we are able to offer a wide range of enjoyable, practical courses from which trainees can leave with new found skills and the knowledge that they have helped to conserve one of the country's most important landscapes.
