A little about Kings Langley in Hertfordshire

The village was probably part of the lands of the Abbey of St. Albans, although actual records have been lost. At the Norman conquest the manor was given to Williams half brother Robert, Count of Mortain who let it to one Ralf. It is around the manor that the present village developed as a linear village lying on the old road from London to Berkhamsted and the Midlands of England.

Around 1276 the manor was purchased by Queen Eleanor[3] and a palace was built on the hill above the village to its west with a deer park extending to its south.[4] This gave the village its link to royalty, first being renamed Langley Regina after its sponsoring queen, and then later changed to Langley Regis or later still by the added epithet "Kings".[4] The village remained the location of Kings Langley Palace, a royal palace of the Plantagenet kings of England:[3] a Dominican priory was founded next to the palace and remains of this can still be seen.[2] The palace and the grand church that accompanied the priory fell into disrepair at the Dissolution of the Monasteries and little remains above ground level.[4]

An explanation of chimney liners fitted in Kings Langley

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.

Smoke tests in Kings Langley

After Ansell Chimneys have fitted your chimney with a new liner, we carry out a quick, simple but effective test to ensure there is the correct draw and no smoke or other pollutants can flow back into your living space. This is quite simply a match-like device that smokes profusely when burnt and is placed just above the site of the fire. If the smoke is neatly drawn up the chimney, the fire will be safe to use.
