Notes:
Skew is a Scottish term which commonly refers to sloping structural elements. More specifically it is the sloping tabling which caps a gable and is upstanding above the plane of the roof. Where slates or tiles butt up against the skew, they were usually covered by a mortar fillet, which now tend to be replaced by flashings, to prevent water ingress. For further examples of skews see: 53010/5 & 53010/6.
