Damp on the internal walls where chimney breast

Attic bedrooms, what’s my best option here, I’ve taken the thick wall paper off and there is dampness, as in the pictures. If I over board it using batons so that there is a cavity will this stop the moisture coming through? What else would you suggest? Or do I just need to get the flashing looked at on the roof?

also, wooden beading on the corner, assume I need to chop this out, bond, and put new mental bead there?

thanks in advance.

As above. Same problem on Victorian terrace renter...ongoing issue and neighbour had same problem. Went halfs with him and took down chimney stack just below roof level and re-slated. Cheaper for him, and made it even cheaper for us ;)

Amazing the amount of bricks in them old chimneys though!
