We were commissioned to fit a Chesney’s Shoreditch wood burner into an old inglenook fireplace in Bighton. The fireplace had been modelled a number of times over the years & was currently used as an open fire. We first removed the brick build fireplace chamber and seats. The chimney was lined and insulated and a new steel register plate fitted. We then lime rendered the interior of the fireplace and plastered the chimney breast. Where the original fire sate there was very bad damage to the brick hearth – the customer chose to have a new slate hearth laid to cover this area. We then repaired and stained the rest of the brick hearth to match the front section.
The stove is a Chesney’s Shoreditch 5 in silver finish. The hearth is a riven slate over an old brick hearth. The little door on the left of the fireplace is an old bread oven.
