Rebuilding a decayed chimney stack in Sheffield

This customer's chimney stack was leaning over and was becoming precariously close to falling down. Further investigation showed that the mitt-feather (the wall in the middle of the stack that separates two chimneys) had fallen over blocking one opening. Birds had nested inside the blocked chimney and over the years built up several layers of nest, causing pressure on the outside walls of the stack. This subsequently pushed the chimney stack over.

Scaffolding had to be erected up to the chimney stack, then the damaged stack was taken down. The mitt-feather wall was repaired and the chimneys cleared so they could be used in the future. The stack was then re-constructed back to its former glory, topped out with its original cowels to match the other chimney on the far side of the adjoining building.
