Welcome. My name is ***** ***** would be glad to assist.
Is this chimney ever in use? Or is it closed up?
Can you see inside the flue on the chimney or is it all brick, rock or other?
A visual inspection can be done just to see inside?
Is there a cap on the chimney to keep water out or is it open?
Let me know and we can continue,
Thanks
