Is it a Cobble or a Sett?
Cubes and setts, cobbles and cobblestones. The terms seem to be interchangeable, depending on your location. There’s a whole range of regional terms, too, such as “Cassies” or “Nidgers” in Scotland, and “Belgian Block” in some places in southern England. The terms refer to blocks of natural stone, hewn from a quarry, in a range of sizes and rock types, and “cobbles” or cobblestones is also the name given to large, rounded beach pebbles 200-400mm in size, which are sometimes called ‘Duckstones’. These rounded ‘cobbles’ or River Cobbles. The general public tend to refer to the gritstone ‘Hovis Loaf’ type as Cobbles, although the correct term is ‘Setts’ – these range from 100x100mm to 200x250mm in size, and have an average depth of 150-200mm.
