Not sure if this is eactly the right thread to post this on but hopefully someone can help.
I have moved into a house with a fireplace that is semi-converted to gas. It has a pipe that runs from the side of the chimney breast under the floor an up through the base of the fire - ready for a gas fire. The problem is I don't want a gas fire. So I intend to try and remove the pipe from the base of the fireplace. Its an insulated pipe though and I was wondering if anyone knows how far down I need to dig it out and what I need to do to it and the base of the fireplace before its ready for a coal fire.
Thanks in anticipation
