I wasn’t sure how far away Shepton Mallet was when I saw images of thick snow there today. I know where it is, but was just struggling for an accurate mileage.

The answer is just 102 miles from our Guildford showroom according to Google – and I daresay the white stuff extends a few miles this way going by the wintery scenes on the BBC website.

My point is that it’s not too late to get your new stove or fireplace sorted before the cold weather – but you need to hurry. We have new stocks arriving every weeks and many of our stoves, fires and fireplaces can be purchased and delivered to site within a couple of weeks.

Look out for our new range of logs, kindling and firelighters which should be arriving soon.
