Talk about a treat. Old Iron, Old Iron.

An unfeasible quantity of metal has been removed from the house over the previous few weeks. It was quite a relief to have this out and weighed in.

Lead pipes ran behind most of the walls, providing gas to the numerous wall lights – quite a scary thought in a house containing so much wood.

A gravity heating system, in heavy carbon steel pipe, ran exposed through all rooms, along with its newer replacement in copper, concealed in the floor boards.
