Unusual garden wall

Something struck me as odd about this lovely old garden wall at the fine country house I’ve been working at lately. ‘Strange size of bricks’ I mused… Then I spotted a place where the brick facade was falling away revealing stone underneath. I’ve never seen bricks laid on their sides like this before to create a brick ‘veneer’ on a stone wall. It seems to have lasted for quite a few decades anyway, against the odds!
