Dry stone retaining wall.
In the old part of Sandiacre, Derbyshire, there are a few walls similar to the photo shown. They are all retaining walls and not freestanding walls. They are mainly near the church which has had building work done in phases from 12th to 19th century. We suspect they are all down to one stonemason/waller. Has anyone else seen any similar walls anywhere else in the country? The bit shown is near the lock up and pinfold which is believed to be circa 1660 and is the more usual horizontal bond, above what we believe is the earlier herringbone bond.
The wall on the left supports the church yard. The newer wall on the right is a later wall to the new graveyard.
Anyone seen anything similar elsewhere?
