Burnside

The gable at Burnside after the cement harling has been stripped off. Lets you see what mid-18th century Fishertown houses were built of - namely rubble stone, some whin boulders but mostly sandstone with a few bricks thrown in. The mortar is a mixture of cement-sand, lime-sand and clay. Hopefully, it won't look like this for very much longer!
