Fireplace fitting in Vauxhall (SE1), South East London

We removed our customers original cast iron arched insert a few weeks ago and sandblasted it back to bare metal and refinished in a matt black high temp paint. The damper plate was very badly corroded by soot and damp, we repaired and rebuilt the damper plate and took it to a foundry to be cast in iron giving it another 200 year lifespan. Our customer wanted a small cast iron surround which we managed to locate for them using our extensive trade contacts. The surround and insert were fitted on a slate hearth for solid fuel.
