As I walked past Mononia at 21 Brunswick St yesterday I found the wall in danger of collapse. I don’t remember it looking so off kilter. Has it gradually been getting worse or has it suddenly collapsed?

    It seems to have gotten slightly worse since the pine (cypress?) trees were chopped down a few months ago. It’s been fenced off for about a week with no apparent repair work being completed, apart from installing the orange wires and the temporary fencing.

    Will be interesting to see what happens. It will be a pity if the fence is removed rather than repaired.

    If this has been a sudden thing I can suggest that the recent heavy rains could be the culprit; after long dry spells when the soil is like a dried out sponge shrinking downwards the reversal happens with a return to rainfall volume and you get upheaval of the soil expanding up and outwards again.
