Gallow brackets work very well but make sure fixings are well in and of good quality steel bolts very straight forward on that level .

Gallow brackets are ok as long as the Chimmney breast isn't more than 1200 mm if so they will need to consult a structural engineer

As per George Boyd. Use high quality fixings rated for the load required. Don't economise on fixings. Fix into large/through stones wherever you can.
