I’m wanting to fix a shelf that will be taking some weight into a 110 year old limestone wall
The wall is plastered but beneath the plaster is quite crumbly.
And solid, no cavity in the old days.
We thought using a board along the wall fixing with liquid nails, wall plugs and screws then drill the shelf brackets onto the board?
Thanking you for all suggestions

Could you maybe cut a series of vertical grooves in the plaster then transfer the weight to the floor via rods/bars or similar. I suppose brackets below the shelf would do at the top. Fixing the bottom might be awkward mind. Replaster when done to hide the trickery.
