Review of Coalbrookdale Severn stove

Coal brook Severn conversion

Steve Barton 2 years ago

Bought one of these online but found it was the boiler model when I went to pick it up.

I closed off the automatic thermostat aperture and made two sliding manual vents in the bottom of the doors-a relatively easy job and lined the firebox with 30mm vermiculite board.

We burn logs and coal and it's an absolutely brilliant efficient economical stove.

Stove expert replied: Boiler stoves should not be used without them being fully connected to a water system according to the Health and Safety Executive guidelines produced a few years ago.
