House Coal 

House coal is a naturally occurring non-smokeless fuel available in 3 sizes.

High quality house coal has no more than 15% ash content and no more than 2% sulphur content, and must not be burnt in smokeless zones, unless it is burnt on an approved 'smoke-eater' appliance.

House coal is ideal for open fires, but may only be used on multi-fuel stoves and Rayburn-type cookers when recommended by the appliance manufacturer and when Smoke Control Regulations do not apply, unless the appliance is exempted by DEFRA

Welsh Dry Steam

Welsh Dry Steam is a naturally occurring semi-smokeless fuel - much softer than anthracite, but more clean-burning than house coal.

Usually used to 'raise steam' in railway engines, traction engines and steam-powered boats - also available for domestic use and offered in three sizes - Cobble / Large Nuts / Small Nuts - produced at the Ffos-y-Fran Colliery in South Wales.

Best suited for closed appliances and Rayburn-type cookers, not AGA cookers. 

Wood Fuels

Supplied either in a Full transit load, half transit load (about size of pickup truck) or a builders bag or if smaller quantities nets of logs. Kindling wood also sold

Wood can be divided into two main categories 'Hardwood' from deciduous trees (We supply a mixture of Ash, Beech & Oak and 'Softwood’ (if requested).

Hardwood logs are a lot denser than softwood logs, and give a much higher heat output.

The heat content of softwood is almost half that of hardwood by volume, so you need twice as many softwood logs to produce the same amount of heat as hardwood logs. However, softwood does light easier and burns quicker due to the resin content. This results in more immediate heat so softwood is ideal for kindling and starting a fire.

It is important to note that under the Clean Air Act, it is an offense to use wood as a fuel within a 'Smokeless Zone' unless it is burnt on an approved DEFRA exempted appliance
