A large number of Saxon settlers in Chorleywood led to it being a very important town. The Saxons called it Cerola Leah, meaning a meadow in a clearing. Through Chorleywood runs the line that once divided the Kingdoms of Mercia and Wessex and now divides the counties of Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire. Edward the Confessor gave the town of Chorleywood to the Monastery of St Albans.
By 1278, it was known as Bosco de Cherle or Churls Wood, Norman for Peasants Wood. Upon the Dissolution of the Monasteries, it passed to the Bishop of London, being renamed Charleywoode. It became Crown property during the reign of Elizabeth I. The Turnpike Act of 1663 gave Chorleywood a chance to exploit its strategic position, allowing locals the opportunity to charge civilians to use the road from Hatfield to Reading.
Chorleywood is most famous for its Quakers. Non-conformists came to Chorleywood, promised sanctuary by the locals. William Penn founded the Pennsylvania Colony with settlers from Chorleywood, Rickmansworth, and nearby towns in southern Buckinghamshire, having lived and married in Chorleywood.
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 Chorleywood 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 Chorleywood 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.
