    Love to see these old sandstone walls. Makes me feel homesick. The below shot of the wall at Stanlawe Grange, Aigburth Hall Avenue, has been on here before, I believe, but I couldn't resist. I took it on a visit to the 'Pool in May 2007.

    Does anyone remember one of my favourite walls it was a house off Rocky Lane ( West Deby Road) that had the Rocky Rabbit on it , the shape of a rabbit made up from peeling render. It was there for years and it was a sad day when the owners re -rendered the outside

    I've posted these pic's before,as I was curious as to how such high walls,which are in Newquay,by the Pier head,have remained so straight,after so many years,assuming they are around a hundred years old! Oudis provided some info' on technique, and materials used.

    Some wall/masonry inspired idioms/phases/rhymes:


    Driving me up the wall.
    Brick sh*t-house
    Bricked it, or bricking it.
    Stoned
    Knocking me 'ed against a brick wall.
    Sitting on the fence [though not masonry, so may be disqualified?]
    Stick your head above the parapet.
    Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall...
    He/She was the 'cornerstone' of the community.
    My request was 'stonewalled' by red tape.
