In situ restoration of a fireplace in Muswell Hill (N10), North London

We installed a new slate hearth to an existing fireplace in Muswell Hill, North London. The fireplace was to be restored for use as a solid fuel fireplace without removal, which limited us to installing a template cut slate hearth, replacing the grate with a new cast iron grate and putting in a new firebrick. It was finished off with a replacement cast iron front bar and ashcover and a slate fender to disguise a change of floor level. Pics on http://www.facebook.com/rpsfireplaces soon.
