Warm Air Stoves

 
The Heritage Group has an ongoing quest seeking out Churches and other historical buildings where there could be the possibility of finding unused and abandoned warm air stoves from the Victorian and Edwardian eras.  Many warm air stove discoveries by different known and unknown makers have been made. The stoves shown below illustrate the variety of shapes, styles and sizes that were made during the V & E eras. The warm air stoves separate into two types, 1) the pattern built into brickwork or an enclosure and,  2) the free-standing pattern.  The search for further makers and types continues.
