pr1uk. Of course you're right, but by bigots, not the ordinary folk. I've been aware of these walls all my life but have accepted that that is how it is (a bit like the 2 Ronnies sketch; altho', with diligence, I was able to elevate my position from Ronnie Corbet to Ronnie Barker) & I'm not able to change it, so have just ignored it & got on with my life.

I knew these walls exist in N I but never heard of them rest of the UK very interesting.

They were not class walls in Northern Ireland but more keeping the protestants and catholics apart
