"French" Skew Bonding

Cowley Junction

I have read about these but never seen one. Now I find there is one just a mile from home. If one was to be built in Britain, I guess it would be a brunel job. 51deg skew. stone vousoirs cut so the joints are square to the edge. Bricks dressed to fit producing tapers and double curves.
