Cast Iron Fireplace InsertsCast Iron Fireplace Inserts were first introduced in the 18th century and were the classic period feature in most living areas. These inserts help to bring a bit extra colour and design to a fireplace and are available with a variety of fuel options.
They are becoming increasingly popular with people trying to replace the period features of Victorian houses and are suitable to burn coal/logs and most have the option of either a gas or electric fire as well. However they will require specific hearths depending on the method used which can add to the total cost.
