Lakeland coal

Postby Daveanmucker » Thu Apr 02, 2009 5:36 pm

I have a solid fuel stove on Dark Island, it will burn charcoal and peat OK, however the very best fuel for it is a product called Lakeland coal produced by a firm in Lancaster and sold in winter by a local NW supermarket called Booths.

Normally I stock up for the season from Booths, However this year by the time I had got back to Lancashire they had taken them of the shelves.

I have tried hard to find another stockist without success, just an off chance someone may have come across it especially in Cumbria.

Its such good stuff really burns clean and no dust on t deck.

Any decent coal merchant will have something that will do I would have thought.
There's one at Crooklands which I guess is almost lakeland!
