One of the earliest mentions of Wood of the Boreham, is in 1188: In 1188 Pope Clement granted to the kitchen of the monastery the whole land of Elstree. He also gave to the Abbey the wood of Boreham for the feeding of the swine.
In 1776, the House of Lords granted an Act for dividing and closing the Common or Waste Ground, called Boreham Wood Common, in the Parish of Elstree otherwise Idletree, in the Country of Hertford.
Up until 1909, the town was part of the ancient parish of Elstree; the two still share a local council, Elstree and Borehamwood Town Council.
From the 1920s onwards, the town became known as one of the main centres of the UK film, and later television, industries due to the presence of production studios.
Following World War II, the towns population increased, with large areas of council housing set up for displaced Londoners, many of which are now in private ownership.
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.
Our prices are based on the property location and number of chimneys that need lining. Please contact us for a no obligation quote. As Borehamwood is not far from our head office, jobs here will not attract a higher quote.
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.
So if you live in Borehamwood and need a new chimney liner, why not call or email Ansell Chimneys and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
If you would like to know more or are interested in a quote we would be happy to help. Phone us on 01923 661 614, email us at email@example.com or fill in our enquiry form and we will be in touch as soon as possible.
