Since graduating from University I was involved in blacksmithing for just over 15 years. The vast majority of my career as a Blacksmith was spent at Ironart of Bath, creating a wide variety of bespoke architectural and ornamental metalwork. Whilst blacksmithing I gained a strong understanding of the need for accuracy and attention to detail, applying this discipline to all of the work that I did. I know that if a project is planned and managed properly a good job will result, and I continue to apply this in the walling and stonework that I do today.

I began studying the craft of walling with the help and direction of the Dry Stone Walling Association in 2014 and realised my ability to create, restore and maintain beautiful walls from a natural and sustainable material. Whilst living in the Cotswold’s for many years and enjoying the countryside I noticed just how much of an important and noticeable feature of the British landscape dry stone walls are. Using traditional and modern methods I look to restore old or build new walls, knowing that they will stand for many years to come. The stories some walls can tell can date back hundreds, and in some cases thousands of years; I feel privileged to build walls and stonework for the future that will become part of history.

I provide a friendly and professional service, and I always aim to exceed customer expectations from the initial contact right through to the completion of the project. Delivering a quality job on time and in budget for my clients is of the utmost importance. For further information, please visit our services page and feel free to contact us.

"Dominic repaired a 4-metre-wide section of cotswold dry stone field wall for me. It was collapsing and was being further damaged by plants and overgrowth. He cut back and cleared away the plants, stripped the wall back and rebuilt it. I am so happy with the work he did as the wall provides security and it looks fantastic".

Max Johnson (Director) Tetbury Property Management

"I use Dominic for my garden maintenance on a regular basis. He is always happy to take on any extra jobs around the property that I need doing. He's hard working, friendly, reliable and does a great job".

Caroline Juliet Simmonds

"We used Dominic to restore a rear and side dry stone boundary wall of ours. After years of putting the job off and the wall getting worse we decided to get it sorted - we only wish we'd done it sooner. We are thrilled with the job Dominic has done repairing them, he turned up on time and it's so much nicer to look at a proper wall than what was a growing pile of stone!"

Mr. Stuart Lynes

"Although Dominic normally builds boundaries out of stone, we used him to erect a new fence in our back garden. The last one was very much on the way out meaning the new one would need new posts as well. He took down and removed the dilapidated one and swapped it with a fine looking replacement - arrow straight and strong! He now maintains our garden. Needless to say, we are very happy with all he has done and continues to do for us".
