Load bearing walling is a traditional building method for Portland stone, commonly used on Portland and in the surrounding Dorset area. It is often used as cavity walling construction typically for domestic properties and sometimes in combination with brickwork.
There are many different variations of this walling but they are typically divided into three main categories: Ashlar Walling, Split Faced Walling and Hand Dressed Walling.
