St Mary the Virgin - Burgh St. Peter, Norfolk, England. In 1793 Rev. Samuel Boycott, who was both lord of the manor and vicar of the parish, was granted a faculty by the Diocese of Norwich to rebuild or complete the church tower as his mausoleum. The result is an unusual, possibly unique Georgian Gothick brick tower in which each stage is smaller than those below. Date: circa 1930s

Damp-proofing in a house
Damp-proofing in a house. Impermeable layer of tar-like material (diagonal black line) inserted in the bedding joint between two courses of brickwork in the wall of a house. This layer is known as a damp-proof membrane (DPM), or damp-proof course (DPC). DPMs prevent moisture from the ground rising through the brickwork causing dampness (rising damp) and damage to the wall above. Evidence of rising damp is visible in the two courses below the DPM. This can be seen as moss is growing on the wall and the mortar is coming away between the bricks.
