What is fire?

Here’s a really good minute physics video on fire which I hope you find as interesting as we did! Don’t forget to get your wood fire really hot you should order kiln dried firewood which has a higher calorific output than seasoned logs which can hold more moisture.

If the Oak is out before the Ash…

If the “If the oak is out before the ash then we are in for a splash,
But if the ash is out before the oak we are in for a soak”

One thing we’ve found from working for so long in the firewood industry is that you become pre-occupied with the weather. We always find it amazing how some of these old sayings usually make sense…

We’ve still got plenty of Oak in stock and it’s unlikely that it will be “out” before the Ash which is back in stock on Friday 10th April 2015 and available for pre-order now although in limited quantity.

Birch is still at a sale price and volume discounts are in operation throughout the shopping cart, however, we’ve taken the liberty of posting a separate product in our very best deal for BULK BUY BIRCH which we hope you will take advantage off to stuff your log store for a “fully stacked” Summer!

Halloween or Samhain?

Halloween or Samhain?

We all know about Halloween or All Hallow’s Eve but did you know that it coincides with the Celtic Festival of Samhain?  A time when the veil between this world and the next is thin. It’s a good time to do some fire scrying!

Celebrate Samhain on October 31 in the Northern Hemisphere, and May 1 in the Southern Hemisphere.

Bride of the earth,
sister of the faeries,
daughter of the Tuatha de Danaan,
keeper of the eternal flame.
In autumn, the nights began to lengthen,
and the days grew shorter,
as the earth went to sleep.
Now, Brighid stokes her fire,
burning flames in the hearth,
bringing light back to us once more.
Winter is brief, but life is forever.
Brighid makes it so.

Light a fire for the Feast of Samhain and keep the fire burning throughout this coming Winter season.

direct debit payments – new!

We’ve teamed up with GoCardless to enable customers to lock in the price of their firewood logs for a fixed term in advance.

Direct Debit is the simplest, safest and most convenient way to make regular or recurring payments in the UK.  We like it because it reduces our payment processing charges for recurring orders from regular account customers. 

Because we recognise every woodburner is different you may want to speak to us about setting up a bespoke plan with variable delivery, payment and duration settings.  You can set up your account details once and we can request payment from your account with your authorisation for each transaction.

We do have set plans available to subscribe to and an example is shown below – simply click through and agree the set up of the direct debit.  We will contact you separately to agree delivery date and frequency.

Set up direct debit for 10 x 40litre nets (30cm) per month for 12 months

More options will be available soon and we would love to hear your requirements.  Please join our mailing list to keep up-to-date.
