Depth of Footings for Lean-to at Gable end of Property

Postby cuttingcorners » Sat Jul 01, 2017 6:07 pm

I am planning to build a lean-to on my gable end using breeze block and with a slate roof.
I need to dig out to lay a concrete base. Can anyone give me an idea of how deep I need to dig out and what thickness the concrete base needs to be?
I will be hiring a mini digger and driver to excavate the ground so I need to be able to tell them how deep to go. Any help appreciated.
