Bond, English Garden-Wall

♦ In which there is a single course of headers and then five (or sometimes three) courses of stretchers. This is not so strong since the bricks are bonded only through every fourth or sixth course. This is characterisitic post-medieval bond in the north of England for ordinary buildings.
(Beresford, Maurice and Hurst, John. Wharram Percy: Deserted Medieval Village, 136)
