A FINAL call is being made for entries to the 2014 Dry Stone Wall Competition.

Hosted by the Country Land Association (CLA) the competition is open for entries until June 30.

Aimed at preserving the county’s ancient craft of dry stone walling, the biennial competition recognises and rewards the people behind the miles of distinctive walls that define Yorkshire’s famous landscapes.

Held in association with the Yorkshire Dry Stone Walling Guild, the competition is believed to be unique in Britain as it judges new or rebuilt walls in the countryside and is not a contest between wallers building temporary short stretches.

The competition is open to all wallers who live and work in Yorkshire and is free to enter. Entry forms are available by emailing north@cla.org.uk or telephoning (01748) 907070.
