Identify purpose of this ducting in attic?

    Hi, I'm in the process of getting quotes for Solar PV. We’ve vents on one part of the roof where we’d ideally want panels. I can’t access this particular part of the attic, can anyone tell me what this ducting might be for? House has a heat exchange system so I would have thought en-suite would vent to that and not the roof?

    Solar company are happy to move attic vents but not ducting relating to ensuites

    Thanks in advance.

    To me, looks like vents to internal soil pipes?

    Extractor fan I'd guess.

    At a guess a extraction vent from an ensuite or internal SVP

    Thanks all. Pretty sure now it’s a soil pipe vent.
