It will not be long before the leaves on the trees start to change colour and the nights start to draw in. This can be quite a depressing thought and result in most people avoiding the essential preparations for Winter.
If you have a woodburner or are planning on having a stove installed it is a good idea to inspect the flue and/or book the chimney sweep now! If you leave this until it starts to become cold then you may find the good chimney sweeps are now all booked up until Christmas. This link will take you to the register of chimney sweeps nationally where you can just pop in your postcode and your local sweep is identified.
