How to Build a Dry Stone Wall for a Bridge: Peter Welch

Watch as we build a dry stone wall to protect a bridge abutment. This video shows how to build a stone wall for the town of Marlboro, Vermont. The project is two wing walls on the upstream side of a bridge.

In this video, you will see how to use the Standards of Dry Stone Retaining Structures as published by The Stone Trust of Dummerston, Vermont to build a stone retaining wall.

You can get your copy of the Standards by going to and clicking on the resource page.

Welch Masonry provides towns and states with the capability of maintaining their historic stone structures.
