BRICKWORK page 5: Brick nogging and infill
This page shows examples of 'brick nogging'.
When a timber building was losing its infill (made of mud, lime,
dung and so on) people often refilled it in later centuries with
brickwork, and sometimes made it decorative.
Detail of the right side. The work on the right is called 'herringbone'
as it is the pattern of fish bones.
15 St. Peter's Street from the back. The wonderful nogging, including
herringbone again, may be part of the original building - note the
date in the brickwork of the lower storey - 1620
