Wall Copings Enquiry

We have probably the largest stock of reclaimed wall copings in the country with hundreds in stock. Because we have so many varieties and sizes, they are not all listed online, but we invite you to submit the form below, which captures all the information we need to be able to respond to your enquiry efficiently.

    If you are looking to match an existing coping please include relevant dimensions here:

    Please provide any other requirements or information that would help us to respond to your enquiry:

    Wall Width, Coping Width & Other Dimensions

    The most important information we need is the width of the wall you are capping. Most brick walls are two bricks wide (9″/225mm) but some older or higher walls are three bricks wide (12-13″/300-325mm). Stone walls are often 18″/450mm wide. Please check yours as this is key information to get correct.

    All wall copings (except flush brick copings) should be 3-5″/70-100mm wider than the wall itself so that they overhang by 1½-2″/30-50mm on each side of the wall.

    If you’re trying to match existing copings, we will need to know the length, height and upstand dimensions as appropriate.

    Reclaimed wall copings vary enormously in all dimensions so it may be difficult to find enough identical copings for your full run. However, as long as all of your copings are within 1 to 2 cm in height and width, you can join them successfully using the mortar joint to hide the differences. A bigger difference in height can be disguised by bedding on a slightly thicker bed joint. 

    Using different sizes of copings adds to the character of a period property wall. It’s also completely appropriate as very few actually have a perfect run of identical copings.

    Coping Type & Colour

    We’ll need to know what type of coping you are looking for and in which colour or material. We stock copings in Staffordshire blue and red clay, as well as blue, red and buff brick copings. We also have a range of reclaimed and new stone copings in Yorkstone, gritstone, limestone and Indian sandstone. Some examples of different types of wall copings are shown below to help identify some of the more common ones. (There may be others so if yours isn’t shown, we may need to see a photo via email.)

    Types of Staffordshire Blue wall copings in profile
    Staffordshire Blue clay wall copings are almost indestructible but are considered too costly to reproduce today so reclaimed is usually the only option.
    Types of Red wall copings in profile
    Red clay wall copings include both brick-type copings and larger copings like saddleback and bishop’s hat styles.
    Types of Blue Brick wall copings in profile
    Blue brick wall copings are fired at high temperatures making them water and frost proof.
    Types of Buff Brick wall copings in profile
    Buff brick wall copings are less common but may be appropriate for walls using buff bricks like London stocks.
    Types of stone wall copings in profile
    Stone copings are usual longer than they are wide. Cock & Hen (Natural/Rustic) coping on stone walls uses flat pieces of the same type of stone laid upright on edge.

    Length of Run

    We’ll also need to know how long the wall you’re trying to cap is. Wall copings vary in length. If we don’t have enough of the same length, we may be able to combine different lengths to achieve the run required. This may seem odd, but often once they are laid you won’t be able to tell they are different lengths! We also feel that using a mixture of lengths is both historically appropriate and aesthetically interesting.
