Stone Wall Smith

First we must build the foundation. It is very important that this be constructed correctly because "If the bottoms aren`t reyt, tops wont be" !


After the foundations we build the first 4 courses up to what is known as "through height"


At about "knee height" we place into the wall the "through stones" These effectively tie the double wall together and make the wall stronger. These stones must at the very least span both sides of the wall.


This is the finished item showing a"cheek end" or "wall head" which is another level of difficulty and is not as easy to construct as at first might appear !

Walls do not always have to be straight ! These "planters" at

Overtown were recently built by Steven for Cliviger Parish Council
