    What is the name commonly used for the concrete "stone" which sits on top of a pillar such as shown. I presume it's going to be something like top stone or cap stone? What do most builders refer to it as?

    Thanks.

    Pier Caps or just Pillar Caps.
    Usually made of concrete.

    And the tops for walls are called wall Copings

    I've got a pair on my gate posts. I call them Tarquin and Jemimma.
