Tutor Steve Tomlin has over 10 years of mowing experience and has been teaching for the past 6 years.
There is a link to his own website here - stevetomlincrafts.wordpress.com

Courses are very popular with those who wish to learn this satisfying skill as a peaceful alternative to the noisy strimmer. The scythe will cut weeds, brambles, rushes, small scrub and grass and works in small spaces, around trees and on slopes. Mowing is a gentle non-impact exercise suitable for all ages.

The Tuesday course is aimed at beginners. You will learn how to set a scythe to your body, how to use a scythe, how to sharpen it and maintain the scythe.

The course for improvers on Wednesday will enable you to take your newly learned skills to new heights.

Bookings: Hannah Rose, Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, 015242 51002, info@storiesinstone.org.uk

Our scything course in 2015 was made more interesting by the airlift of stone slabs from the adjacent field up on to the slopes of Whernside for path repairs
