Hello, I would like to put a period fireplace back into the living room of our house where currently we have a hole left from the removal of a back boiler. I wondered if anyone had done something similar or indeed still has the original fireplace that I could take a look at? Thanks, Lucy

We opened up five chimney breasts that had been sealed in and put four fireplaces (and the oven) in them. One of the replacements was a salvage. After having a lot of trouble getting another salvage to fit we replaced the other three with cast iron replicas. It was easier to get the right size and the whole house was a disaster so we just wanted to finish it!


Hi Lucy

I used to have a back boiler and an ugly gas fire on the front, I bought a fireplace from someone on eBay and my plumber installed it for me - I have uploaded a picture of how it looks now (although the picture is a bit dark!).

There is a post from a few years ago where people uploaded pictures of their original fireplaces - I have just posted a reply on it so it should appear at the top of the feed

Thank you both. Claire many thanks for finding that old post, very helpful, I will get scanning eBay! L
