Can a flu pipe from a woodburner run at 45 degrees for a metre before going vertical for 4m? Situation is an old uncovered hearth which due to a partition (which I'd prefer to remove, my wife says NO) is at one end of the wall. I've had a read through the uk regs and can't find anything to say this isn't feasible. Have I read wrongly? And more to the point, is this good practice or not?

Any help greatly appreaciated, thanks guys.

I have seen several installations where the flue goes through an outside wall at 45 degrees before going up outside of the building.
