The fixings are rather small, and were perhaps not expected to last 240 years. The weakness of this type of wall is that it relies on the ground staying firm enough to stop the slabs from falling over. Fastening them together with iron plates helps, but the iron rusts and the stone slabs around the plates. Many of the slabs have broken, either due to vandalism or the action of frost getting into cracks.
