Spotted in the end wall of a run of Georgian terraces in York Street and near Abbey Court Yard. Can anyone tell me what these strange holes mean? Is it a specially shaped block of Bath stone that originally had a use elsewhere?
Barry Mulholland – who is a follower of the Virtual Museum – has emailed to say: “Interesting. They look like they have been cut into the existing wall (see the existing arch over the central unit).
Could they be bat holes, which often have a funnel up to the roost? Don’t ask me how or why!”
Thanks for that Barry. Any other thoughts on the subject folks?
