The lack of farming in Bushey Heath meant that it was a heavily wooded area up until the 18th century, and this, added to the lack of street lighting and police, meant that Bushey Heaths history is full of tales of thieves, highwaymen and even murder. The road from Bushey Heath to Stanmore is said to be where highwaymen lurked, ready to raid the dozen or so caravans that passed through Bushey Heath daily, carrying money from trade in London. Before venturing through the pass, parties of travellers and merchants would form at the Boot Inn at Edgware and the Three Crowns at Bushey Heath so they didn't have to venture through the pass alone. Although one of the highwaymen responsible for the attacks is rumoured to have been Dick Turpin, evidence suggests that he was in fact more active in the region of Essex at the time though.
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 Bushey 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 Bushey 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or fill in our enquiry form and we will be in touch as soon as possible.
