These stones on the edge of this house caught my eye whilst sitting at the traffic lights this morning....

Thanks Wijnie....
Mar 06 2012 20:36 GMT hallo
The builders got fed up using small stones and grabbed the larger ones to finish the job :)

It is a curiosity to me too Barbara. I wonder (if at one time) there may have been an adjoining building sharing the protruding stones in the back wall and these simply have not been chipped away. I noticed the the masonry work was not as uniform as that on the front of the building and that parts of the chimney has been re-pointed.
My first impression was the same as the "happy snapper", but that doesn't seem practical.

I guess they ran out of cash to extend or the builder forgot to trim the bricks, either way interesting photograph

It's a very hilly area Bea.......!

That's what I thought, too......

I don't think so somehow Larry, because it is a much newer build than the house next door the other way.....it's also quite a steep drop at the side ....I will have to ask if ever I am walking past there....I am almost certain it's not to climb up to the roof :)). But then you never know round these parts ...!

I am definitely going to have to find out Don......just 'cos I am curious too......

it seems to be an elderly structure, the antennae sticking up on top looks forlorn. don't you love to be sitting in traffic and "see something"?! driving can be quite hazardous sometimes for that very reason! good you were stopped, i should try that more often haha.

I don't think it's as old as it may appear....and yes, there is plenty of opportunity to be sitting in traffic here at the moment, as almost every road seems to have road works with temporary traffic lights!!
