Now entering the testing stage.
So far the stove has been tested with 2 stews, soup and garlic bread.
Next will be baking of bread and cakes.

living room fire
No cooking done on the fireplace, but watch this space.

Has anyone got an old coal-bunker they don't want?

In my yoof it seemed every house had a concrete coal bunker out the back. I haven't seen one for years, but it seems you can still get them.

Not very period, mind. I'd be inclined to get some recycled bricks and knock up a coal bunker myself. Put it round the side of the house where there's easy access via yer side door - and you could even make a special coal delivery gate to the street, for when the Coalie comes round.

I remember coal being delivered when I was a nipper. It always came in one of these lorries. I hope stuff like that still goes on!

I remember those lorries too. I suspect these days it arrives in in plastic sacks in the back of a Transit.
