The Grade 2 listed chimney at Crofton has not required any repairs since 1996, until now.
In January 2023, we experienced torrential rain followed by a period of sub-zero temperatures. As a result, expansion of ice crystals within the mortar and brick had caused damage to the chimney, pointing and brickwork. The west side of the chimney particularly suffered from this damaging weather.
After a period of fund raising repair work to the chimney was started at the beginning of November by a specialist team of contractors.
A huge big thank you to everyone for their generous contributions that has made these important repairs possible.
