We’d really like to thank everyone for cooperating with us through these strange times. We have had a high number of orders and have managed to get them all out. Everyone has kept their distance and paid online we’re possible.  
The yard has run smoothly too, again everyone staying in their cars as requested.

It’s only from this cooperation that we’ve been able to keep running.  As we only have a small team (3 of us) if anyone had to self isolate we’d have had to close.  We are very much aware that for some of our customers that would mean no heating or hot water! So again we’re really thankful we’ve been able to keep everyone warm.

Keep safe, stay well

and most importantly, STAY AT HOME!

How will the solid fuel ban affect me?

 

Do you burn bituminous coal? This is traditional mined house coal.

 

Yes                                                                                  No

Until February 2021 you can still buy                                                         If you burn a Defra approved smokeless fuel like

bituminous house coal in plastic prepacked                                               Supertherm manufactured briquettes nothing is

bags.                                                                                                          going to change for you.

Until February 2023 you can still get it delivered                                       These are the most enviromentally friendly way to

loose in 50kg sacks and tipped into a bunker from                                    heat your home, along with seasoned or kiln dried

an approved coal merchant like ourselves.                                                wood.

After February 2023 you'll need to move onto burning

a Defra (The Department for Enviroment, Food &

Rural Affairs) approved smokeless fuel, like Supertherm.

These alternatives can give more heat, last longer and

are less polluting to the atmosphere.

Frequently asked questions.

I burn a non-approved smokeless fuel e.g. Oxbow Red or Oxbow Glow; can I still burn those?

Unfortunately, not after February 2023.  These fuels have a sulphur level higher than the approved smokeless fuel and therefore will also be phased out.  The good news is there are many approved smokeless fuels on the market to suit all budgets, and most of these high demand fuels will soon also be Defra approved.

 

Can I still pick prepacked 20kg plastic bags from your yard?

You can still collect bituminous house coal from our yard until February 2021, after that date we’ll be able to delivery it loose to you until February 2023.  Our approved fuels and dry wood will continue to be able to be collect as usual beyond 2023.

 

Can I still burn natural Anthracite?

Yes absolutely, this is naturally occurring smokeless fuel.

 

Which woods can I burn?

All our wood products are already compliant will the changes.  The burning of wet wood is being banned; this is wood with a moisture content of above 20%.

 

Are you an approved coal merchant?

Yes we are and we are approved wood merchants too.

 

Please get in touch if you have any more questions and we’ll be happy to help. Although this will have an impact on our business, we support the governments clean air policy, a cleaner environment is better for everyone.  We will continue to sell Defra approved, clean burning, smokeless fuels and dry wood as we always have done. 

Love your fire, Love the environment!
