Hi all,

I am trying to put up a sliding barn door.
I have an old victorian house built 1905.
Wanted a sliding door in my dining room as space is very limited, upon putting in fixings bolts, they are just not gripping and the walls are crumbly, tried some resin too but still not holding, any other suggestions?
Some bolt fixings have taken but not others.picture of bolts and fixing ti secure to wall. View attachment 270951
