The Stone Structures and Walls of England and New England: An Evolution

April 8, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Join dry stone wall builder Andrew Pighills for a virtual presentation, “The Stone Structures and Walls of England and New England: An Evolution”.  Concentrating on the stone structures of England and New England, the lecture draws comparisons, similar and dissimilar, between the geology, building styles and techniques, and follows the evolution of stone walls and structures from colonial times to the present day and explains how they fit into the garden and broader landscape, past and present.  Born in Yorkshire, England, Andrew Pighills is an accomplished stone artisan, gardener and horticulturist.  He received his formal horticulture training with The Royal Horticultural Society and has spent 31 years creating gardens and building dry stone walls in his native England in and around the spectacular Yorkshire Dales and the English Lake District.  Sponsored by The Friends of the Woodbury Library.
