Hi guys, I wondered if anyone would be able to cast any light as to what kind of Woodburn we have in our shed! We want to restore and fit it but don't want to go ahead without being able to identify it in case we need parts! It has a back boiler and a solid top, and no identifying plates, but if any info could be given it would be greatly received, Thanks in advance

It honestly looks like a 70s or early 80s Chinese or Taiwanese stove.

Old UK model? The best thing to do is see if there are any identifying casting marks that would hint at the manufacturer.

Where are the casting markings normally found I will have a good look over and see what I can come up with, thanks for the advice

Ok, I always thought it was a British Stove as it was originally used as the main central heating system for a 17th century coaching Inn, but I have no other information available, So this could help my investigations

They are often on the underside or backside of a casting. Look on the back of the doors and on the bottom of the stove.

It is certainly no where near that old the style just isn't right for that but it could easily be an English stove
