English Bond Brick Walls

Basic brickwork - This page shows the english bonds for simple brick walls.Garden walls built using English bond are one brick wide. As with any wall built of brick, no two adjacent vertical joints should be in line.

With a straight wall this is not a problem, it's just alternate courses of headers and stretchers with each joint on the stretcher course centred on a header brick on the course below.

When turning a corner at the end of a straight run needs the use of a Queen Closer (coloured blue) on each course.

Joining into a wall part way along the wall, is the same as for the end turn except that a Queen Closer is only needed on every other course.
