I was having a little bit of a nose around the Grand Theatre/Broadway Boulevard yesterday and noticed this section of back wall that is held together with staples!

That's not just an eyesore, it's a definite safety hazard.

They are not staples.
They are pieces of material sometimes glass, which have been glued across the cracks to show if there is any more movement in the brickwork.
Staples, mmmpf.

I'm surprised they have even bothered to put movement indicators on the building as the extent of movement seems fairly obvious.  A bit of decent shoring would appear to be the order of the day!

A bit difficult to tell from the photos but they appear to be what is known as 'tell-tales', there for the purpose of monitoring the extent and direction of any movement.

Dave's second photo shows a tell tale sign that you're correct.

Well done to Tosh also.  $good$

Most of the early Victorian buildings in Llandudno were put up without what we would call today adequate footings / foundations and the buildings themselves in most cases were totally jerry built, so itís no surprise when they deteriorate so very quickly especially if left unoccupied and unmaintained.

The water damage from our past wet summers, coupled with the snow ice and frost damage from our past cold winter and now the drying out of the subsoil from this prolonged spell of hot weather spell disaster for all uncared for properties in the town. There is a multitude of sins lurking behind a facade of pebbledash and rendering.  Itís only a question of time before all is revealed.

What's really sad is the Council concerning itself with double glazed windows, instead of caring for the fabric of the buildings put in their trust.

Whoever this Jerry is, who built Llandudno, he must have been a hell of a busy chap.

Probuild are local builders based, I think, in a yard off Jubilee Street.
