  1. That is so sad to here . Sorry for there great loss.
  2. If its as bad as you think , then it would have already been desided ,I honestly belive a vast percentage of our population are not bothered either way . It is only the anti trying to gain support . We are a population of 66 million .out of those figures what percentage have they got . It is only those that having nothing to do in there lives , have no lives of there own , try to spoil it for other . When we were kids in the 50s there was no talk of this , we were only to happy there was food on the table.
  3. Paul I am trying to think were I got mine from I got the hole kit from them , depends if it 5 inch or 6 inch .I was lucky as I have a bungalow so only just under 5 meters , and it depends on how chimney wall is I diameter , we had to chip a bit of walkout to get it past a bend in the brickwork . I made a plate to block the lower part just above the fire got some slabs from Jewsons to make a fire hearth and made my own surround out of MDF. All nice and cosy
  4. Paul I would just concrete render it leave it rough paint , were you locate the stove bring it as far forward on the hearth as you can . This will throw more heat into the room . The further back the heat will be lost into the brick work. Invest in a stove fan they work great . Are you fitting a stainless liner..
  5. Harry yes its burnwell coal very slow burning at £17 a bag so two backs £ 34 and just under 3 weeks , when it get a lot more colder a bit more maybe . Not quite a shower full at bed time . Stove turned down open up in the morning quick rake with the poker and away it goes . It's the best stove we have had . When I was fitter I used to cut logs and burn them , but happy the way we are doing it now .
  6. I am with you 100% , I have had dogs all my life, that is no way to end a dogs life . It said one dog they shot it did not die and 3 minutes later they had to reshoot it . So sad .
  7. 100% this time of year mine is on 24/ 7 I buy 2 bags of Barnwell lasts nearly 3 weeks . That's about 12 pounds a week . It's very good
  8. This is ours had it about 7 or 8 years , this time of year we run it 24 / 7 use Burnwell coal . Ticks over all night keeps most of our bungalow warm. https://www.clearviewstoves.com/stove-details/pioneer-400
  9. We had a Wolseley 4/44 in the late 50s , beautiful looking car . And still look good to this day , when you see them are rallies .
  10. My pal used to do it as a young lad in the early 60s
  11. Yes saw that , so funny . Did they . Also read " if this fuel shortage keeps up , we will be standing outside on a Thursday and clapping for the tanker drivers " 🙂
  12. Europe shares the same problem.
  13. WHO YOU CALLING A BENEFIT SCROUNGER , I STARTED WORK AT 15 YEARS OF AGE AND RETIRED AT 67 , I PAYED INTO THAT SYSTEM ALL MY LIFE . THATS NOT SCROUNGING THAT JUST GETTING BACK WHAT I PAYED INTO WHAT A STUPID THING TO SAY .
