Should the OP be expected to know the difference?

It would seem the OP's claim is partially based on:
1. the wall was defective in its construction/maintenance
2. the owner knew, or should have known along with the risk.

The age and construction of the wall is relevant
Its intended purpose, probably wasn't designed to take anyone swinging on it
Had it been a wire fence, would the OP even think there was a claim?
The OP is fighting the case themselves, so yep, you need to know: the difference between concrete and mortar, building regulations and british standards/EU standards for mix, the construction, along with evidence that the wall was unsafe and the owner knew.
My suggestions are not legal advice

One last time.

Personal injury law works like this:

If you have a good case (and we will not ever really know from here), then a lawyer, after investigating what needs to be investigated to get to the core of it, will be pleased to take it on at virtually no risk to the claimant (but see some limitations).
If a lawyer is not prepared to take the risk of failing despite presenting the case well, then it makes no sense to pursue a case presenting a bad case (likely) at half cock.
