We have engaged Joe and Tom for several walling projects in our steeply-sloping Derbyshire garden and it’s always a pleasure when this jolly pair of long-haired craftsmen appear on site. They are experts in working the local stone and their walls sit harmoniously in the surrounding Peak District landscape. A wall by Joe and Tom is so much more than a structural feature, their eye for detail and consistency of style makes for a truly elegant final product that will stand the test of time.


Rain or shine (or snow!) they always arrive on time and work hard to complete the project in hand. I highly recommend them.

Tom & Joe (Allsop & Barwick) have been working with me for the last three years whilst building a house extension. At all times they have been approachable, supportive, friendly and professional; with a great understanding of our vision.


Throughout the project, irrespective of the complexities encountered, Tom & Joe have remained consummately professional to produce fantastic quality.


Joe, Tom and their dedicated team work with pride and passion. They clearly love their job and I would recommend without hesitation.

"Tom and Joe have completed four walling jobs for us in and around our garden.  Their work is of an exceptional standard and has been much admired by our neighbours and passers-by.  The work was carried out efficiently and professionally even under difficult weather conditions in January. They are genuine and friendly people and I would definitely recommend them."

John Robinson - Matlock



Joe and Tom are true craftsmen of their profession and possess a great natural talent for design.  I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them."


Jenny Cooper - Youlgrave



Tom and Joe have always done an excellent job for me.  Whatever challenges I’ve presented them with they’ve always delivered with skill and enthusiasm.  They work extremely hard and are always professional and courteous.


I have no hesitation in recommending Tom and Joe to anyone who is looking for top class walling experts.

"A beautiful wall which is almost engineered this is something else… "


"All that rubble has been assembled into this beautiful shape… What a deceit eh?"


“It`s a real joy to see properly napped, properly bedded dry stone”


"Every stone was dug out of the ground here, split, shaped, and faced, to produce walls that are unerringly fine. It`s mesmerising work"


Kevin McCloud – Grand Designs



I write to recommend Allsop and Barwick to anyone who values high class craftsmanship and attention to detail and appreciate friendly customer service.


I wanted a traditional stone retaining wall and steps being erected together with associated "indian stone paving" for the yard and steps. After selecting Allsop and Barwick it quickly came apparent I had enrolled the services of friendly, hard working and dedicated craftsmen who sympathetically achieved and exceeded my aim. As part of the process I was involved in the design process being kept informed with idea sharing all helping to enable an outstanding result and exciting/rewarding experience.


I still couldn't believe just how straight and precisely the interlocking stone wall/steps had been created contrasting against how quickly the work had taken and how affordable the work was. Indeed to simply say 'value for money' does not do my experience justice particularly as the extremely friendly customer service which accompanied the work, allowed for a very enjoyable process.


I truly believe that the outcome is a genuine piece of art, and I believe this simply would not have occurred without the dedication  and willingness for Allsop and Barwick to go the extra mile, which all accompanied the craftsmanship and service. This is why I would recommend Allsop and Barwick to anyone.

Joe and Tom have rebuilt several walls for us.

They are a great team and are courteous, friendly and relaxed. They come when they say they will and are prepared to discuss what we want in detail.

They are also realistic about what can be done and what can't and when they are the able to carry out the work so we always know where we stand.. which is refreshing.


Their work is of a high structural and aesthetic quality. They are proud of their work and it shows.
