Support ties to chimney stacks This topic, raised in our August issue, has brought a number of replies, Mr Colin Loveless disposes of the query with simple directness: The tie mentioned by ‘anon’ would be very effective in preventing the chimney from falling outwards on to the heads of passers- by below. If the wind were to blow sufficiently strongly from the other direction, the majority of the debris would presumably remain on the roof. Mr R. D. Anchor writes in similar vein, bur adds an intriguing thought: There is a simple answer: the tie prevents the stack falling onto your neighbour’s property; if it falls onto your own roof, that’s your problem.
