Damp on chimney breast

Postby oddjob » Mon Jun 25, 2007 6:51 pm

We have just found that the the base of our chimney breast (internal wall)is damp to about a foot high from the floor. I think our fireplace may have been filled in sometime in the past with expanding foam (?) and there are no vent bricks as far as I can see (upstairs or downstairs).
Does this sound like it could be the cause of the damp ?
