    Or is it just cosmetic?

    Was there some sort of 'lean to' there once?

    I'll be seeing it this weekend but I just noticed thiswhile looking at the pics again. Possibly could have been a lean to but there's no record of one. I'll be sure to ask.

    Impossible to say from those pics.

    Tabby's right - there's clearly been a building of some kind attached there in the past, and quite probably the brickwork was painted. If what you're seeing is just peeling paint and mortar residue, then no problem at all.


    If the pointing's shagged or the bricks are spalling, then problem. But...? <shrugs, peers>

    It wouldn't look like that if there was a problem.

    There's clear sign of a building and flashing against it. Not a problem when you're looking at it from that distance. Might be a little bit of repointing needed, but it looks like that's been done too.
