    It looks like it might be sand and cement. Has a chimney breast or something been removed? Is it a party wall that was built from the other side, against an obstruction?

    Stand back and take a wider pic. Include something to show scale.

    What is on the other side of the wall?

    In some districts a cement or lime render is applied before finish plaster, but IME it it not very hard or strong.

    You can plaster over it if you want.
