    Hi, I have heard that asbestos may be contained in chimney breasts ? Does anyone know where this is likely to be ? All I want to do is drill a hole in the chimney breast in my lounge to hang a mirror above my fireplace. Is this likely to disturb any asbestos ? The walls are papered over, so I don't know what lies underneath. Sorry if this sounds silly, but I am new to DIY.

    Thanks

    Paul

    dont worry about it, any asbestos may be in the chimney lining and you certainly wont drill anywhere near deep enough for that
