In Brighton Uncle Jim told us about a unique building method that I found fascinating! Because of an abundance of flints they were widely used in buildings in this area and directly across the Channel – but really nowhere else. Here’s some pics:
The flints are placed in cement and then painted over.
The wall on the right is a flint wall.
Sometimes they cut the flints in half and place them with the insides facing out.
These flints have been cut in half revealing the inside of the rock - it's sort of like amber with little fossils inside!
Another example of the flint walls.
