Recycled stones?

photo / text by Peter MachanWhen a large section of bank on Edward Street collapsed in 2003 this remarkable section of wall was revealed. Solly Street runs along at the top of it. At the time it was suggested that some of these massive worked stones originated from the castle. I have never heard a suitable alternative suggestion. Has anyone any alternative suggestions? The site has now been entirely built on and the wall is covered.
