What a monster! We have just secured this huge Britannia boiler for our client and what a beast it is! Such boilers were used to heat all large spaces like warehouse, schools, factories, manors and other large institutions and were still being manufactured well into the 1960s. This one dates from circa 1920 and will be fully restored and put to use by our client providing hot water for heating his 18th century manor in the Norfolk country side. His estate has an abundant supply of wood so it makes sense to use this renewable resource rather than the expensive and alternative of heating oil.
We can’t wait to get cracking on this one!
