Hello, We've just moved house and had to get the gas fire removed as was leaking gas. We don't want to replace it - instead block it up and get plastered over. My question is how to block this up? This is a detached house built in the early 80's. There is a flue which goes up inside the cavity wall - in the loft it appears to be aluminium tubing, then to a chimney on the roof.
Do I just block it up with bricks/mortar or is an air brick required?
