Prestigious awards donated by His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales will be up for grabs at this year’s Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Drystone Walling Competition.

The contest, which takes place at Prestons Folly, Broadfield Farm near Tetbury on Sunday 5th October is run by the Cotswolds Conservation Board in partnership with the Cotswold branch of the Dry Stone Walling Association of Great Britain.

Competitors will have the chance to enter one of four classes: class one  – professional, class two – amateur, class three – novice and class four – beginner pairs.

Organiser, Mark Connelly from the Cotswolds Conservation Board said:

“This year’s event is exciting because it has an added dimension to it in that it encompasses the Dry Stone Walling Association’s Annual Anniversary Walling Championship, which is being held to celebrate the organisation’s 40th Anniversary. The event will see national finalists competing for awards that have been donated by the patron of the association, His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales.”
