Leaning Chimney

Leaning Chimney

The chimney on this 1930s house is leaning very slightly inwards.

It has taken perhaps eighty years to reach this stage and does not appear to be an imminent danger.

However, it needs noting now and monitoring regularly to ensure any further movement is identified quickly and corrected. In extreme cases chimneys have to be taken down and rebuilt. An expensive job with scaffolding required for safe access.
