A little about Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire

After the Norman conquest, Robert, Count of Mortain, the elder half brother of William the Conqueror, was granted lands associated with Berkhamsted Castle which included Hemel Hempstead. The estates passed through several hands over the next few centuries including Thomas Becket in 1162. In 1290 John of Englands grandson, the Earl of Cornwall, gave the manor to the religious order of the Bonhommes when he endowed the monastery at Ashridge. The town remained part of the monasterys estates until the Reformation and break up of Ashridge in 1539. In that same year, the town was granted a royal charter by Henry VIII to become a bailiwick with the right to hold a Thursday market and a fair on Corpus Christi Day. The first bailiff of Hemel Hempstead was William Stephyns. Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn are reputed to have stayed in the town at this time.

An explanation of chimney liners fitted in Hemel Hempstead

A chimney liner essentially is a flue lining that is set into a chimney. The liner itself could be made of clay, ceramic, or a metal conduit installed inside the chimney and is intended to contain the combustion products, direct them to the outside atmosphere, and protect the chimney walls from heat and corrosion.
