Dry Stone Walling at Rectory Farm Fields with OCV

Oxford Conservation Volunteers is a voluntary organisation that has been carrying out practical work conserving the wildlife and traditional landscape of the Oxford area since 1977. The group organises work parties every Sunday (and some Saturdays) and undertakes a wide variety of nature conservation work. This can range from the traditional craft of hedge laying to the modern practice of fence building; from creating new hedges by tree planting to conserving chalk grassland habitats by scrub clearance.

We began work on one of the walls on this site last April, and we’ll continue the work with today’s Saturday task. We discovered a surprisingly large amount of good quality stone, so there’s plenty of material to work with, and we should be able to go a long way towards finishing the construction of the first section. If the intricate challenges of dry-stone walling don’t appeal, then there’s still a significant amount of stone that needs to be dug up, sorted, and laid out for future work
