What are you cleaning from it. If its paint go to our paint stripping project, if its just dirty scrub with a scrubbing brush and some slightly soapy water.

needle gun and compressor, needle gun has a pistol with a holder for pins which scuttle around when air passes over them, which you hold against the stonework, comes up a treat
the joints can be raked out using a point tooled pistol also with compressor,
dont use a steel wire brush you will make the stone black
