Building a dry stone bridge - Part 11


The shaping and fitting of the builder stones in the skewback to the springers and voussoirs of the extrados of the stone bridge are very important to have looking right. The horizontal stones have to meet the radiating stones nicely for the bridge to look appealing. This is a sketch on a stone I did for Trevor illustrating the point.




This is the north side of Crown bridge before we started adding parapet coping.
