Flu lining

Does a 100 odd year old chimney have to be lined before I fit a log burner? Its been an open fire in constant use until last week when I took it out.

in principle no. but you will have to cap the chimney breast off above the stove and leave 2 access points so you can clean out any fallen soot.

Yes all chimneys should be properly lined apart from if a a new chimney has been purposely built with clay flew liners all the way up.
