Chimni has been announced as the sponsor of a special event at the Chiswick Book Festival focussing on House Histories.  As a new edition of her book House Histories is published, Britain’s leading house historian, Melanie Backe-Hansen, uncovers the hidden stories and secrets of ordinary and extraordinary houses across the country. She will reveal fascinating stories of people and events she has uncovered in her work researching the history of houses, with particular examples of houses from Chiswick and west London. Introduced by Torin Douglas, director of the Chiswick Book Festival.

Chimni will be on hand to show people how to use a Chimni log to store and present their house histories and to create links to the growing collection of online sources of historical material. Click here to see more about how a Chimni log can be used for house histories.
