Review of Coalbrookdale Little Wenlock Mk3 stove

Coalbrookdale Little Wenlock Mark 1 multi-fuel stove

Angela Perkins 7 years ago

Installed in 1981 and at 34 years old, my Little Wenlock stove has sprung a leak from it's back boiler. Might have experienced a flood, if it had happened overnight but it is such a shame it has come to the end of it's life after having given reliable service, lashings of hot water and heat to the kitchen for so long. I will miss it.

Now to upgrade to another small stove but not to another Little Wenlock, the smallest of which does not now have a back boiler.
