Who hasn’t had a go at skimming stones on a river or lake?

The British Stone Skimming Championships are at Walcot Hall Lake, Lydbury North, SY7 8AZ, again this year on Sunday July 16th from noon until 5pm.

There will be various stone related events going on. Have ago at:

  • Stone the Crows
  • Piling Stones
  • Stepping Stones
  • and No Stone Unturned


Entry to the field is free. There is a fee of £3 for a set of four Skimming Stones. All other events are £1 or 50pence.

Bring along a picnic.

Stone Skimming Rules

The stone must skim at least three times and stay within the marked lane. It will be judged on distance. Any stone leaving the lane will be judged at the point it leaves the lane. The judges decision is final.
