Welcome to the site, Hammer and chisal sounds about right, taking care not to damage the block. If you are really brave you try a small jack hammer with a spade bit. I would look at replacing it with modern looking rock or light weight concrete, looks like rock. Lots to choose from.

I leave that for people who know more about that. If you can post a photo, you might get more suggestions.
