Irish Stone Walls: History, Building, Conservation

by

Irish Stone Walls: History, Building, Conservation Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 — such as dry stone associated with the West and the Mourne mountains — these walls are an intrinsic part of the landscape. This unique guide covers the history of this ancient tradition, giving illustrated examples and step-by-step instructions on using lime mortars and on constructing, conserving, and repairing stone walls of all types — whether dry stone or mortar. This is an ideal book for amateur and expert stoneworkers, conservationists, architects, and people who want to know the tradition of stone walling.
