Taking down part of the new kitchen wall on a windy wet day was not the most pleasant of experiences as the wind hits here unimpeded across open fields straight from the Irish sea. It was fun though trying to figure out what had gone here in the near and distant past. As far as I can tell the revealed stone wall to the right is part of the late 18th century house whilst the kitchen is an addition circa 1870. This small part of the house has been at times a covered entrance then a different sized doorway and finally a window, so the wall was a 22 inch thick mass of brick,stone, concrete and rubble. Now we just have to get new footings in and block it up prior to doing away with the evil render......I do hate dash.
