We recently bought a house and have taken off the plasterboard which was covering the fireplace. This has revealed what we think is an old back boiler. It all seems to be disconnected. How would we go about removing? Seems they've also thrown I bricks?
First check that the old boiler is redundant if so cut back the lead pipes as far back as possible remove the said back boiler and brick up as required or if using as a gas fire form a new chamber by bricking up either side and fitting a lintel to Mt's standard
