rising or from above ?
I live in a terrace of 3 storey solid stone walled miners house
the ground floor is a cellar which opens onto the rear garden and is
below front door (street) level
back / \ front
the cellar is soaking 1/2 way along 1 adjoining wall and into the corner
of the rear facing wall
next door (as with all the houses in our street) has a yard area higher
than the cellar along this same wall but there doesn't appear to be
anywhere where the water can be seeping from other than their main drain
which is on the other side of their yard. about 6 feet away.
could this be the source of the damp or can rising damp (there are no
foundations or cavities) rise 7 feet up a wall ?
how can I find out where the damp is coming from (cheaply) ?
