Hearths

Hearths can be built from virtually any non-combustible material. The most common for town houses was slate or quarry tile. For farmhouses, York slab, floor bricks or pamments were usually used.

A later development was to use granite for a smart appearance, usually in combination with a marble surround.

With the advent of the wood burning stove boom, the variety increased still further, with other stones becoming more popular. such as Indian sandstone.
