    I've just purchase a house and am looking for some advise...

    I've demolished a built in wardrobe / airing cupboard and when looking to re-plaster I've noticed a couple a pipe that I've traced up into the loft where it just ends.... The pipe runs behind the wall and the room is above the kitchen (not sure where it goes)....

    I believe this is no longer in use and believe it might have been from an old cold water tank (house was built in 1930s).

    How can I be sure this isn't in used and what is the best way to get rid of it? I've attached a couple pictures which should hopefully help

    Many Thanks,

    Open like that it ain't doing anything. Find both ends is one way to prove its dead.

    probably from the old header tank.
