This INFORM guide provides information on recognising common forms of earth and clay construction and their repair and maintenance. The use of clay and earth as a bedding mortar for masonry is covered in a separate guide, Clay Mortars for Masonry Buildings.
Planners and Owners, Conservation and Heritage Enthusiasts
The Engine Shed has been supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to create Scotland’s dedicated building conservation centre. It enables us to encourage understanding of traditional building materials and skills among the public and professionals and raise standards in conservation for traditional buildings.
