Brick damp-proof courses

Two or three courses of dense, semi-engineering or engineering bricks were laid in hydraulic lime and later cement mortar. There is little likelihood of these dense bricks fracturing under moderate settlement. Because of the dissimilar colour and texture of these bricks to that of facing bricks and the cost of the material this form of dpc is little used.
