Review of Glaisdale stove

Glaisdale stove, 2nd hand bargain.

Stephen Crompton 10 years ago

I bought mu Town & Country Glaisdale secondhand on Ebay for £155. After replacing the seal around the flue outlet, and fitting new fire bricks and throat plate it now works very well.

I have it situated in my front room, and by leaving doors open the heat it produces warms my 3 bed end terrace right through.

At first it took some time to learn how to set the air controls so as to get the best performance, but now I have it burning as cleanly as the Clearviwew I owned some years ago. Also, by using large hardwood logs the Glaisdale will stay lit for 10hours, or more.
