Chris Swales is a highly acclaimed Master Stone Mason and Carver from Skipton. The 38-year-old opened his business ‘Swales In The Dales’ in 2005 and since then his work has become renowned all over Yorkshire and Lancashire. However, it has been quite a journey for Chris who suffers from Fibromyalgia to get to where he is today.


Sadly, in 2013, Chris was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia – a condition that cause widespread pain and muscle stiffness along with other physically draining symptoms.
