Okay, so I'm no Mary Poppins and our Chim-chiminey isn't quite like the one in the movie, but here are some more pictures. The 'manitou' lifting thingy arrived at the beginning of the week to bring down the sandstone block from the chimney.
Here it is in all it's glory.
The builders have covered over the chimney well while they are away for the weekend.
Here are some of the blocks that were brought down from the chimney.
