Thanks Jo.  A lot of people like that weather struck pointing, but I didn't realise that about the lime/cement difference thank you!  I am in talks with Chris Janice's recommendation and he seems to know what he's talking about.
Jo M
Thats great.   Weather struck doesnt actually prevent any water, as the water just trickles round, and it looks horrible, IMO.   Good luck with it.

Thanks everyone, I have a good few suggestions there so I definitely have a good choice. It just makes me feel much more confident to follow recommendations when it is an area I do not know much about. Thanks again.

Anne, you could also try Galicia Motors in Astwood Mews near Gloucester Rd tube. I've taken my Ford Focus there over many years for annual services, MOT and repairs. They've always been cheaper than Ford's own dealership/repair service. Ask for Vincent.
