OK so string line from highest part of the land to get a straight level line and determine where top course is going to end heigh wise.
450/450mm concrete level foundation to allow natural stone bricks to sit inside outside edge by 100mm and leave plenty of room for block or concrete behind this course.
At the point where land starts to rise shutter in concrete and incrementally reduced levels in steps to accomodate rising brick courses. Get to terminal height and continue edging all around on top of 6 inches of c30 concrete.
Bang in 100-150mm limestone lay slabs, jobs a gooden....
Oh, and for extra precautions use type 1 to back fill behind wall instead of shifting soil about to avoid clay expansion and reduce loads.
Come on, tell me the error of my ways lol
