Where the sea winds have buffeted these garden walls, the softer yellow bricks have been eroded away, leaving the mortar courses exposed.

Good heavens! That looks scary. I hope the damage bricks can continue to support the flint layers.

It's an unusual way round. Mortar can become friable and necessitate repointing, as our end gable wall has done. This must have been a pretty soft batch of bricks. The houses are probably inter-war period, so they haven't lasted more than 80 or so years.
