Hi Guys,

I am a student with a coursework to complete and in need the help of all you experienced dry stone wallers.

Can you tell me roughly how many metres per day an experienced contractor can build a 100m length dry stone wall and what cost would they charge? I know that there are many varying factors but for now I will assume a reasonable flat surface for a double layer wall, 1.3m high.

My research so far seems to suggest a reasonable rate of £25/m2 and as per a previous posting, this is inclusive of both sides.

For this, am I right in thinking that for a 100m wall at 1.3m high = 130m2 and at £25/m2 = £3250 ??

However, I've no idea if the average build rate is 2m or 20m per day and the rate per man or using 2 men? (or women of course!)

Apologies if I have over simplified my request, but I just need some ball park figures?

Many thanks in advance
