About Alan Coles, North London Chimney sweep


Alan started out in the chimney sweeping business in his native Bristol in 1981, working under experienced sweep Ted Bailey. He started his own business the following year. He worked in Luxembourg with Emile Antonie Chimney Sweeps, 1995-6. He co-ran a stove shop, called Wild at Heart, in Westerleigh, South Gloucestershire, 1998-9. In 2004, he moved his chimney sweeping business to London, focussing on the North and East. He took on his first apprentice in 2006. He expanded the business into central London in 2015. He took on a second apprentice in 2016, who established his own business, Jim West Chimney Sweep, a year later – he and Jim still often work together.

(During over 35 years of chimney sweeping, Alan's had quite a few vans - take a look at them, if you like!)
