those round discs at the base of the wall, the only time i have seen those was the rentokill attempt at a damp course, it was based on that all dampness was static electricity. the copper wires ,about a quarter of an inch width were connected to an earth stake, driven into the ground . you may be able to see this close to property on the external. 1970s

Osmotic damp proofing. All the scientific evidence suggests it's bollox, but it still gets fitted occaisionally. There are two types, passive (as @malc describes) being the most common, and active (live low voltage).

There are a lot of 'snake oil salesmen' in the damp proofing industry. o_O

I've seen the voodoo electric magic wire externally, just a thin copper wire..down where you would find a dpc.
But never seen this method internally?
Cheers chaps(y)...
Must say tho.. It must have been effective ..it's sucked up all the moisture that much it's made the plaster fall off:LOL:
