Wanted Front wall brickwork repair - recommendations?

Hi All,
We're looking for someone to repair one of the brick pillars at the side of our drive - a plant has grown inside, splitting it apart. It's an original wall with recessed panels, so we want a builder who will reuse the bricks and match any damaged ones that need replacing. Also, the builder needs to be happy with a small job - just a single pillar needs fixing with a small amount of adjacent wall. Has anyone else in the triangle used someone local for a similar job recently, who they would happily recommend?

Roger Brown had his wall repaired recently in Blenheim. You could ask him if he would recommend.

Brian Mulcahey is great, he did a lot of our rebuilding (including repointing of the front wall) and understands the importance of proper lime mortar and how it all works in conservation areas. He now just prefers to do small jobs so may be ideal.

Hi Jenny - thanks, that would be much appreciated. We want to get the mortar etc matched, and it's only a small job so most contractors are not interested. Pete and Roger's tips haven't landed us a solution yet.

Chris Mantle, 02380702966, has done some excellent work for us, paving in back garden, and elsewhere in the triangle on front walls. You may need to wait a while but we would certainly recommend. Toni Rolles 19 Blenheim
