if you can move it or get to the back of it, there might be a plate on the back that will provide you with some information. That would be a good place to start.

Puts me in mind of a peat stove with that retaining wall inside. Here's an interesting article about how to fire one of those up!

Looks like he's a bit east of Wales.

More pictures!
Interesting fuel source. In the comments it says they used to just dry the peat and burn it directly. The bricks in the article are actually made like bio bricks. I guess it's like burning soft coal maybe?

On topic, that is a pretty stove. There are a few members of these forums that have experience with this type of stove.

Yea, that looks like peat/coal stove. They made stoves in Europe that were designed to burn coal briquettes made from coal dust compressed. I have such a stove made in the late 20's early 30's from Germany.
