    "Overflow pipe could be for a toilet cistern and it will definitely overflow if one of the parts malfunction."

    "Could be a pressure relief pipe from a pressurised system."

    "Have you traced the pipe in the loft? It could be running down off route and tracking down onto the pipe sticking out making it look like the overflow pipe is dripping."

    "Is the gas boiler in the loft ? If so it could be either the condenser pipe or safety valve discharge pipe. Hard to say which without seeing it. This is the most likely scenario. If you haven't got storage tanks then I would assume that the boiler is in the loft as the tanks would have been removed when the system was changed if at all. Best answer without seeing it as I said."
