I have posted a question about routing CCTV cables through my thick granite walled house/solid roofed loft in the CCTV forum but think it may be better here

I am looking to install a wired CCTV kit but am struggling with how to route the cables due to the build of our house.

The external walls are granite and almost 2' thick so drilling a 30mm + hose would be a pita.
I though of routing the wires through the loft out a vent but having been up there I cannot seem to find access to either the front or back vent, have pulled up the flooring and insulation where I see the for the outside of the building.

Any thought or advise would be welcome

The only thing I can think of. Is if you have a chimney you don't use anymore? Sneak it in from the top. And bring it into your loft? Then you can distribute it to a room from there..
Thanks for the rely Sammy.. way out of my league getting up on the roof
