Text of Herringbone wall

  • Walling, herringbone style

  • First find a HB wall in disrepair

  • Set up the batter, height etc.

  • And start stripping it down

  • Forget everything you

    thought you knew about

    walling, even the foundations

  • Small stones, length along

    the wall?

  • Start at the top of the slope?

  • Choose the right stone to start

  • The stone you wanted is over here!

  • And it fits just right

  • The first layer, biggest of all

  • Added muscle

  • And its in

  • 2nd layer, counterintuitive

  • The copes have to level our wall

  • Which means a bit of hammer work

  • But what a result!
