Heritage Skills

The Landscape Partnership is running a Heritage Skills School to enable as many people as possible to learn about how traditional skills remain vital today.

Building Blocks teaches dry stone walling to offenders on Community Payback, repairing damaged walls while passing on a valuable skill.

Metal and Stone brings local craftspeople together with students from Nidderdale High School & Community College, offering young people opportunities to learn about stone carving, metal working and printing making.

Skills for Trades is a 6 day, certified training course in repairs to historic buildings running from January to March 2018.

We’ve also previously run a series of open courses for adults covering ¬†traditional skills including:

  • Lime¬†pointing
  • Dry stone walling
  • Stone masonry
  • Scything
  • Charcoal-making
  • Hedgelaying
