Here we have Flemish Bond in three different types of brick.

These are very old hand made bricks, probably locally produced (the wall is in Llandewi). The crude cement pointing to the lower courses doesn't do anything for the wall in my opinion.

These are probably machine made bricks. The wall forms part of an addition to an old school. The thicker mortar joint towards the bottom is where the damp proof course was built into the wall.

These cream gault bricks are more common in eastern and southern parts of Britain. These are part of a building in Llandrindod Wells and may have been imported following the arrival of the railway.
