  1. Wow! Just out of interest, what size is that?
  2. They were windows at some point, at that size and 'bricked up' using sleepers, you can see the holes where the chairs were screwed to them. The bar across, I'm going to guess at being some angle iron, with long bolts going thro' to inside and nutted. Possibly find the same on the inside, the sleepers being pinched between the 2 and would stop them from falling over and anyone trying to get in. If there were windows the other side, then yes, they may have done the same set up. The mortar is a different colour, possibly from being re pointed and so it's newer. On the roof, it look
