Lost Histories has recently produced a documentary about the dry stone walls of Derbyshire, “If Walls Could Talk” which tells the stories of dry stone walls in Derbyshire; how, why and where they were built; and exploring how these walls can communicate factually the quirky tales of what are hidden inside and beyond.

With the cooperation of Derbyshire branch of National Drystone Walling Association of Great Britain, The National Stone Centre and The Eco Centre together with highly able, dedicated and same-minded team.

The documentary will be highly visual, letting the the story and history of drystone walls unfold using drone footage and steady camera work which will ultimately showcase beautiful imagery of Derbyshire Peaks and Dales.

The said documentary is in the editing stage and I’m seeking help from your organisation to promote the film around Derbyshire and far afield.

It is my intention to show the film in as many venues and areas to share the overlooked stories of drystone walls, to entertain and educate the audience and promote the beautiful landscape of Derbyshire.

Derbyshire Dry Stone Walls

Along side the documentary will be a table top book, filled with photographs of dry stone walls around Derbyshire, along with quirky stones found in drystone walls themselves along with portraits of dry stone wallers themselves.

It will be a great privilege and honour to have financial support to finish this project and in return will be fully be acknowledged in the end credits, on the DVD cover, also in the table top book itself and you will have use of the documentary for promotional and educational purposes.

With your support, I believe the documentary will reach more audience, touch lives, encourage people to appreciate the overlooked beauty and art of drystone walling and promote the everlasting beautiful Derbyshire.
