During the heavy rain at the beginning of 2014 this gable end collapsed under the weight of the chimney. Much of the wall was salvaged but a significant rebuild job of the cob was required to enable the new chimney to be built on top. Cob blocks lime mortar and reclaimed bricks were used throughout.
