Beetonette repairs

As you can see from the first picture the internals of this Beetonette were absolutely shot! It’s amazing that someone was still using it! Most of the firebox was held together with old stones and bricks and the entire thing was clogged with ash. The entire damper assembly had disappeared so had to be fabricated anew. Likewise only one small section of the RHS firebox was present and the back looked as though it had been hit by a train. The grate is also shot so all of the above as been replaced. The oven has also been replaced as a matter of course as well as the diffuser plate and water boiler.
