What’s this switch on side of chimney breast for?

Hi Forum,

Does anyone know what the switch in my living room is for ? It’s on the wall next to the chimney breast, I’m guessing it’s got an old electrical fire maybe ?

Even if the switch was marked/has engraved text it does not mean that is what the switch controls.
The only way to discover what a switch controls is to operate the switch and observe what happens, or to follow/trace the cable for the switch.
