Damp on bedroom wall

Post by johnp » Sat Jan 17, 2009 4:36 pm

I have a damp patch on the bedroom wall up near the ceiling and one half way down.

Ihave been up in the loft and the chimney is dry all round, their are cowl's on the chimney pots to help stop the rain entering.

How can the damp show through such a long way down from the chimney?

Thanks
