Work included the removal of the existing boilers and pipework and the installation of two new Byworth YSX6000 boilers and ancillary equipment.

They informed us that Jamie had requested a traditional riveted steel plate fascia for the wood burning pizza oven and wondered if it was something we could fabricate.
