does anyone know how can I remove paint from brickwork

I want to revert to original features of the fire place, unfortunately it has been painted with what looks like yellow gloss?

Any ideas ?

i guess what i'm after is a chemical based paint stripper, but one that won't damage the brick work

can anybody recommend one or suggest where to get it from - would all diy shops stock them?
