Yes you should have pillars supporting the wall every 2.5 metres and at the corners and on the gate walls, the footing should be approx 300 to 400mm deep if you have already struck clay as long as it is solid and 300mm wide for a single skin of blocks, also you should have expansion joints in all walls that are over 5 metres long
