In the deep of a South Lanarkshire winter my wee family huddles round our coal and log fire in the living room during these cold winters. I found some fantastic tree stumps and logs deep (six feet deep!) in Galloway peat back in September and October which I'll be burning over the next week or two. My hearth "companion set" (£2.50 from the local charidee shoppe) just doesn't cut the mustard next to this crazy beast of hearth furniture.
Use this fire iron to pay a tax bill? I'd work till the day I die to have this monster keeping guard by my fire!
