Wall Capping

Copings protect the wall by weighing down the courses, bonding the faces together so that the wall settles into a solid unit. Without copings, walls have a tendency to flake away course by course.


Masonry copingMasonry coping – A coping’s primary function is to divert water away from the wall. We offer a choice of coping depending on your requirements – once or twice weathered, coping with intricate detail, curved or radial. We can also work on site to advise on the right kind of stone and to make sure the design is spot on – whether you’re a customer, contractor or an architect, please contact us here for free advice.


Cock 'n' Hen CappingCock ‘n’ hen capping – In areas like the Cotswolds, ‘cock ‘n hen’ coping stones are very common. These are thin individual pieces of stone placed on end at right angles across the top of the wall, similar to local ragstone. We source our cock ‘n’ hen capping from a small local quarry.


Pitch FacePitch face, half round capping – Half round capping is manufactured from our hardest blue / brown Clipsham limestone, pitched face by hand: it’s a neat, distinctive and incredibly durable coping stone.
