If Walls Could Talk A Hidden History of Dry Stone Walling

Postby RolyKeates » Mon Mar 19, 2018 9:01 pm

Hello, my name is Roland Keates. I’m not a waller by any means, however a few years ago after walking in the Derbyshire Dales, I started to question who had built all these long lines of walls, how old are the walls etc. It occurred to me, to research into making a documentary about Dry Stone Walling. I made contact with the Derbyshire Branch and my ideas grew and grew.

At the weekend we had our film premiere at Wirksworth Cinema, Derbyshire to a full house of wallers, crew, friends and family.

I know it’s a shameless plug, but I thought I would show the trailer and featurette to other wallers across the land.

The trailer https://youtu.be/M39EsdI-KAk

The featurette https://youtu.be/M39EsdI-KAk

The film will be soon available on Amazon Prime and a proportion of sales will go back to Derbyshire Branch.

I’m sure many of you will know the wallers in the documentary

Thanks Roly

A few years ago I wrote a book 'Those Dry Stone Walls - Stories from South Australia's Stone Age' [http://www.brucemunday.com.au]. It has been reprinted 3 times, so evidently others too appreciate the mystique.
I am coming to Crooklands 19-20 May for the DSWA 50th and the competition (not as a competitor). Can't wait.
