Even a BristolPlumberNow local plumber would be challenged by this Almighty boiler servicing problem! A newly installed heating system has caused steam to billow out of the top of a mighty cathedral chimney in Norwhich. Members of the public reckoned the holy puffs were smoke not steam and called the Fire brigade instead of a local plumber! The new ECO boiler at St John’s RC Cathedral in Norwich has been fine tuned to receive a rather unholy biomass fuel mixture. But where there is muck there is brass (saved) in heating bills.

Cathedral Deacon and estates manager Patrick Limacher confirmed that the boiler is served regularly by local plumbers to keep it efficient.
