Well, that's giving me a little optimism We're finally making progress here, and I was hoping to avoid more delay. I'll post a little more detail then...
Drainage already planned (in fact, that was the first stage of the project) and partially done. 110mm twinwall. Question: This will be wrapped in geotextile - but do I choose woven or non-woven?
Next question: Can I pour the footing mix on to bare ground, or do I have to put a layer of MOT1 down first? If I can work out how to upload a graphic, I'll upload. In the meantime, the current plan is 125mm thick concrete footings 500mm wide (probably fiber reinforced), then 1 course of engineering brick which will define the height of the path on one side (maybe block paving, not decided yet), with block/brick for the rest. (125mm footing thickness chosen because that + brick + 10mm = 200mm, which I gather is the correct thickness for block paving...)
Potential problem: if I need an MOT1 layer, I may have a problem with depth. With the current plan, I am just above a glazed clay drainage pipe. This carries surface water off to a soakaway, and runs pretty much slap bang where I want the wall...
