Fairy Water: structural stability

The local bricklayer’s typical method of making laying bricks were called into question. There was insufficient amount of mortar placed between the bricks and most of the bricks are vertically connected to each other, but not horizontally. This was a worrying phenomenon observed, especially when there were flooding and mud slide in the area in the recent years.
