A unique history and ’how to’ book on one of Ireland’s most distinctive landscape features - the stone wall.

This Number One Best-seller is a unique history and 'how to' book on one of Ireland's most distinctive landscape features - the stone wall.

The Irish countryside is a patchwork of over 250,000 miles of stone wall. Built from local stone according to the style of each region - dry stone in the West and the Mourne mountains or mortar elsewhere - these walls are an intrinsic part of the landscape.

This unique guide by expert stone mason Pat McAfee covers the history of this ancient tradition, giving illustrated examples and step-by-step instructions on constructing, conserving and repairing stone walls of all types - whether dry stone or mortar. It includes: * History of stone in Ireland * How to build dry stone and mortar walls * Basic and more advanced techniques * Do's and don'ts of repair work * Appropriate conservation methods
