Just to let you know that I have had a hell of a job finding someone to install a stove. Quotes have been huge and opinions vary wildly. I just needed a small stove put into what had been an open fireplace, which would mean removing hideous decorative brickwork and making good, re-jigging the existing pamment hearth and opening up the sides of the chimney-breast a little. This morning I had a phone call Carl Brown from Irons In The Fire in Fakenham, who had been to look at the place yesterday. (The house is being renovated, so I am not in residence yet so all of these people have had to manage without my input on site). He had swept the chimney, put up a CCTV camera to check the liner and flue openings, removed a dead starling, and gave me a quote of just under £1,000 to do everything. Other quotes have been £2,000 and more and they didn't do any of this stuff! I was seriously impressed - and relieved! Hope this is useful to someone.
