Question: I would like to hear personal experiences of pros and cons using the Much Wenlock as a wood stove. Thanks. Answer: Andy, it is better for coal than wood. The log length is only 14" , making it difficult to fit regular cuts in there. It will not burn overnight with wood, either. If you just want to use it for some quick heating while you are in the room it might be fine...but not for 24 hours and day.
