|Finally after a lot of pounding, the bricks below the window are revealed.|
|Work starts on the east wall render which is coming off very easily|
|The render on this wall was very hollow and came off in big sheets!|
|The outline of an old lean to is clearly visible - the inside walls were limewashed|
The other damp proof layer is marked by a set of drill holes in the same wall, just above the original slate layer. It's where a chemical damp proof material has been injected, probably sometime after the '60s. Hopefully these drill holes can be repaired or the bricks replaced with reclaimed ones.
|A stone base to this wall with a Victorian slate damp proof layer below the brickwork. Then 20th century drill holes, unfortunately in the bricks where a chemical damp proof treatment has been injected.|
|The south east corner - only the top 3 feet to be removed later.|
