Welcome to Chimney Charlie

Trained & certified by the Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps, I have now been a member since 2017.

Previously, I worked with Trevor at ‘Howard the Sweep’ and have taken over the business since Trevor retired in 2023.

I maintain the same high standards :-

    –  Adhere to the Guild ‘code of practice’ including:

    –  Thoroughly clean the chimney & fire or stove.

    –  Execute “Building Regulations” conformity (safety) check.

    –  Smoke test the chimney.

    –  Issue ‘insurance recognised’ certificate.

I also aim to:

    –  Be ‘more than the average sweep’ (includes minor repairs as part of the job)

    –  Deliver the best quality at a fair price.


From Wantage & Didcot in the north down to Whitchurch in the south and from Ramsbury & Great Bedwyn in the west to the east side of Reading in the east.
