Treat it as through a wall but maintain the minimum distances.There is nothing in the gas regs saying you cant fit it like that, but there is nothing in the MI saying how to fit it like that.One problem would be that the flue has to be laid to a fall backwards, technically rainwater could run down the flue back into the building through the lead slate.
