The paper presents the test results of lime mortar compressive strength in the joints of brick walls. The tests were carried out with the Double Punch Test (DPT) method and with the use of an impact penetrometer (penetrometric test PT) on original samples taken from the structure of a building erected in the 1880s. The obtained results have shown that the predictions of the mortar compressive strength using both methods were very consistent (the difference 6%). The penetrometric method also made it possible to assess the homogeneity of the mortar in the direction of the wall thickness.
