I'd be tempted to have a go with a lump hammer myself. Bet there is a good deal of cement pushing it out.

Actually just realised that the measurement for the depth on that stove is including the protruding part so it might work actually.

Pity about the lovely brass surround that got hidden.

Did you have a proper firebrick in the back of that?

That's kinda the point - the stove slides in without having to remove the existing milner brick so you can leave the chair in place. It was/is the original fireplace and chair from 1920.

OK; think we also have a problem there as there's just a concrete block at the back of the fireplace where the gas fire is in.

Apparently it does, however this puppy doesn't as its got an additional optional flue connector.

In the end, non of th inet ones fit for various reasons, so having it all ripped out and a proper stove put in. Ehoch apparently has been a very good decision cause it turns out the gas fire wasn't installed legally.....
