Top class service lives on! 

Having suffered a broken firebrick in a wood burning stove purchased from Kings Worthy Foundry, I visited their showroom in search of a replacement. 

With none immediately available, rather than than embarking on the lengthy process of locating and ordering in a new firebrick, the sympathetic showroom staff conferred and offered me a piece of firebrick material which happened to be the right size but was used as a sales aid to customers. 

They even explained how easy it would be for me to cut it to size and fit it myself to save the expense of a call-out. It worked perfectly and I am now warmly in their debt!
