Footpath beside cob wall, Rockbourne
The footpath runs in front of St Andrew's Church. The bank is covered with primroses. Cob was the traditional method of earth wall construction. It developed in areas with poor building stone or limited timber supply. Stabilizers were sometimes included to add further to the strength of the wall. Cow dung was a popular additive, as was lime. These materials also increase resistance to water (which helps to prevent shrinkage), and protect the external face of the wall.
