Many people will give you advise on how to damp proof your house and also charge a fortune to do it, But 90% of the damp problems with a house are caused by the cavity's being bridged (old mortar, muck between inside and outside walls). I would remove a brick at low level and see what's inside (drag out any muck from the cavity ). Dave
