Noble Stonework comprise of siblings Lydia and Bert Noble from Shepley, West Yorkshire where their family have been building with stone for the past 200 years. Many of the notable buildings of the area, such as Shepley School and Cliffe House, are Noble built.
Being 5th generation Dry Stone Wallers and Stonemasons means that Noble Stonework has the knowledge and skill to take on projects of any size and complexity.
Lydia and Bert learnt the craft of dry stone walling from their father Bill Noble: dswa Master Craftsman and Senior Examiner. They also benefitted from the advice of several other highly respected Master Craftsmen and Master Builders.
Lydia and Bert are both qualified Master Craftsmen with the dswa.
Lydia received the dswa pinnacle award for a project built by herself and Adam Clarke over the winter of 14/15. This is the highest honour available from the dswa. ¶
Noble Stonework provide dry stone walling, stone masonry and building services to the highest standard. We are able to work with clients to advise on all phases of a project including design, budget, planning and construction.
Dry Stone Walling
Noble Stonework is able to undertake any dry stone walling project from field boundary work to complex features such as arches, pillars, bridges, dry stone paving and even dry stone buildings. Dry stone walling fits perfectly in a traditional cottage garden and equally in a more contemporary setting.
We are able to undertake new-build and restoration work and are particularly adept at working on vernacular buildings that require a sympathetic eye in order to get the best out of existing features.
Our masonry services include alterations to windows, fireplaces, and doorways as well as total rebuilding of period masonry.
Our other building services include masonry walling, reclaimed brick walling, pointing and flagging.
We are comfortable taking on projects overseas having worked in France, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Canada and across the USA. There is no job too big or too far away.
Noble Stonework can provide training courses for people with any level of experience with walling. We are both qualified instructors with the DSWA.
