Desperate times ask for contemporary measures.

Danger sign from 2004. The warning is real.
In the forum on Stone Pages a stone mason called “a section of wall with 14 courses where the joints weren’t covered” “a massive inherent weakness” (post#33).
The mentioned section is inside the gate.

“…the joints/gaps between the stones have not been covered by the stones on the next course above. This continues for 4 or 5 courses in places, any section of wall with a gap like this over a number of courses is likely in my humble opinion to collapse all of a sudden.”
