Help identifying my wood burning stove and lining?

That wouldn't surprise me and may be the reason soot has fallen and built up on the register plate,

Probably , MEWP would be cheapest . I don't have a cowl but do think they are advisable  because with a stove there is negligible airflow when the stove is off to dry out rain and  a mixture of rainwater and sooty deposits is acidic and that percolating through cement is not good, my flue is cement cast in situ.

 

I would love to have easy access to my chimney as not only would I sweep from there downward but I would also go to some effort to make a DIY electrostatic particulate filter to sit at the chimney top.

No point,  rip the lot out,  then get the cherry picker in for the new install.

I've just landed in the same place as the OP. New house with wood burner.

On closer inspection it all needs ripping out and basically starting again. Annoying but hey ho, we live and learn.

To the OP, I wouldn't try lighting your burner as others have said. It looks as bad as my "install" ...

Good to know I am not alone. Kicking myself now for not asking for an installation certificate or similar. Hey ho we live and learn. 

 

Hoping to have someone in jan/feb to install a new wood burner. Good 3k lesson.

      Had some woodchips delivered. Lovely quality and for free. Was able to start my garden project. Am so pleased with the service that i have decided to give a tip for my next tip waste load.

      Excellent result last year. I was contacted by some tree surgeons through the site after about 6 months. They were thoughtful and helpfully left me with several piles of clean woodchip, which now helps suppress weeds under my trees. Great site. Thanks

      Extremely helpful and friendly main contact and the allotment was very easy to tip at. Much appreciated!

      Answered phone, dropped off within 10 mins. Access ok for transit but no bigger. 3.5m3 load. Spot on, saved me a trip to the yard.

      Brilliant! Had two loads delivered, spot on time, great bloke, would not even take a few Bob to cover his time and fuel, over the moon. I just have to cut and split 6 tonnes of logs now. I will have to buy the wife a new splitting axe for Christmas. 😁
