Stone Ridge Heritage Wall

The Stone Ridge Stage 7 park location was designed to retain a section of the historic dry stone wall, which is over 100 years old. We are rebuilding it using the original method of carefully stacking the field stones by hand. The walls were built by farmers as property boundaries and to contain sheep. Timber was scarce so the rocks were collected from the paddocks. This wall is part of the same boundary line as the magnificent stone wall at the Western BACE.
