Dry stone walling

In 2015 local dry stone waller Andy Roberts completed work on a section of dry stone wall that encloses The Vile medieval open field system at Rhossilli.   This dry stone wall is special because has been reconstructed in the Gower Style.  This style of walling, as the name suggests, is unique to the Gower peninsula.  It is up to 2m high with a characteristic overhang at the top which defies gravity.   It is thought that this overhanging arch is to prevent sheep from jumping over the wall from the common land on to the adjacent arable fields.

Volunteers played a vital role in helping Andy to complete the work on the wall.  Groups from inner city Swansea and local conservationists all took part.
