The wall was leaning to a dangerous point off the upward plumb position towards the Forth canoe club boathouse so we had to instal a structural scaffolding buttress to shore the wall while we safely reduced the stone wall to ground level ,to allow this we had to remove the cladding to the side of the boathouse. The walling completley down ,wall heads cleaned and consolidated we are now rebuilding the stone walling using lime mortar and layaside stone. finshed job to follow See More
