Hertfordshire Chimney Sweep
There’s plenty of history to be found in Hertfordshire. For example, Stevenage and Hemel Hempstead were the first designated ‘New Towns’ that provided abodes for displaced Londoners after the Blitz in 1940 and 1941.
It’s impossible to talk about Hertfordshire without mentioning Hatfield House and Knebworth House. We’re yet to sweep these wonderful buildings but know that if we keep politely bothering them they’ll hopefully ask us to do so one day.
Deep within the county, you’ll also find Borehamwood which is home to Elstree Studios and the unlikely birthplace of Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Superman and many other huge Hollywood blockbusters.
We’re particularly busy in St. Albans, which is one of the larger market towns in Hertfordshire and has a high density of working chimneys. It was also the third-largest city in Roman Britain and a wonderful place in which to undertake our work. Like many, we sometimes take the opportunity to have a spot of lunch in the beautiful Verulamium Park whenever possible.
Chimney Sweeping and Maintenance in Hertfordshire Area
We know Hertfordshire very well – not just because we undertake a lot of our work there, but because one of our sweeps, Andy, lives in Stevenage.
SweepSmart covers the entirety of Hertfordshire. The team frequently visits the surrounding villages such as Aston, Benington, Datchworth, Kimpton, Knebworth and Walkern.
One of the best things about working in Hertfordshire is the opportunity to sweep the chimneys in the area’s fantastic old pubs. You’ll even find the oldest pub in England here, known proudly as ‘Ye Olde Fighting Cocks’ in St. Albans. There’s so much history in these buildings, and sweeping their chimneys is a real privilege.
There’s plenty of variety when it comes to chimneys in Hertfordshire. For instance, Welwyn Garden City and Letchworth Garden City were the first Garden Cities and were massively developed during the 20th century. As a result, their younger chimneys offer a big contrast to the timber-framed medieval and Tudor buildings you’re likely to find in areas like Hatfield, Hertford and Codicote.
It’s such a joy to work in the historic market towns that adorn Hertfordshire. Take Hertford, for instance; with 350 listed buildings, ten bridges, five gates and the stunning Hertford Castle, it’s not a bad office, in our book.
