Hindsight fire place

Fire place with floor vents to 'feed the fire'

Quite a few years ago I installed a nice wood stove in my own house and this works fine except… When you sit in a certain chair you feel a draught on the back of your neck. Did not take long to figure it was the fire drawing in air through my leaky house to feed the fire and the hotter the fire roared the colder your back feels in ‘that’ chair

There is no such thing as a new idea as one old saying goes. I had read about venting a fire esp with modern well sealed houses. But last week I saw in the old Manor house in Stackpole Pembrokeshire a pair of vents in place… I wish I’d seen one before I fitted my own fire!
