Gary Walker: A Life Woven in Wood and Warmth

Raised in the rural setting of a small holding by a woodland, my early years were defined by the crackling embrace of log burners. This childhood experience laid the foundation for a lifelong passion for sustainable heating fuels and a deep connection to the woodlands.

My formal journey into the world of chimneys began with my HETAS training, establishing myself as a certified and approved Chimney Sweep. Beyond the hearth, my exploration of the woodlands led me to become City & Guilds Chainsaw and Tree Felling qualified, a reflection of my commitment to understanding the entire life cycle of sustainable heating sources.

In 2012, whilst living in the North East, I co-founded gdlogs.co.uk, a venture dedicated to providing quality logs with an emphasis on sustainability. This endeavour reflected my belief in the responsible sourcing of quality firewood, ensuring that customers could access wood fuel that was fit for the job. 

Following University, my career journey took an additional turn into the realm of marketing, where I established myself as an Award-Winning Direct Marketing Professional. Over the span of two decades, I crafted successful campaigns for notable brands including TUI, Auto Trader, and Sue Ryder.

My main interest and focus remains within the solid fuel industry. I am the owner of Swept Chimney Sweeping Services in Huddersfield and cover the West Yorkshire region. Feel free to get in touch and I'll be happy to chat about all things wood burning, solid fuel and effective chimneys.
