Planning Permission

Some Legal (boring) stuff.
Our ovens are designed for outside use only, it may sound a bit daft but please take care they do get HOT although the chimney has a twin lining it can still get very hot.

You are normally allowed to burn wood outside the home, providing it is safe and doesn’t present a nuisance to others (like if next doors have just hung the washing out)
Seasoned well dried hard wood should be used; you do not normally require permission to burn wood in your wood fired oven outdoors.
