Crafts that help sustain and enhance historic rural landscapes can be supported through funding from environmental stewardship schemes as part of the England Rural Development Programme. To date, over 1,300 miles of dry stone walls and 17,500 miles of hedgerow have been restored.

The 165 acres that Tom Lord farms encompass a total of 7 miles of dry stone wall, some of which could date back to the thirteenth century. There is more to dry stone walls than meets the eye!
