Village of many historic chimney's

Hey everyone,

my Dad told me, that he once read an article in some guide about a village in the UK where you can find all kinds of historic and artful chimneys. We'll be traveling the South of the UK again this May and I was just wondering if anyone has ever heard about this as well? I can't find anything on TripAdvisor – some hotel (The three chimneys) keeps coming up, page after page. I also did a google search and this is what I found ( hrp.org.uk/aboutus/whatwedo/AboutUsWhatwedoB… ), however, my Dad said this is not the place…

Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you guys :-)

I can't help you with one village like this. Around the outskirts of London there are many houses with Elizabethen chimneys.

Hampton Court must have the most and possibily the villages around there. The houses would use decorated patterns with different coloured bricks and patterns in plaster or wood.

We have cottages with older chimneys added on to houses as people got more money

Hey guys,

thanks so much for your replies. Considering that our itinerary won't include Suffolk this time, I guess we'll be visiting Hampton Court on our way West and marvel at their chimney's :-)

Cheers!

Could the village have been Albury in Surrey? It is known for its Pugin chimneys.
