Frying Pan Flue Fix

The storms at the end of 2015 left our little ‘woodcutters hut’ wood burning stove chimney cowl blown off. Made from an old twin walled gas flue, the lightweight aluminium had ripped in the wind and was beyond repair.

The stove would probably work very well without any chimney cowl being fitted but I really didn’t like the thought of the incessant rain we are experiencing driving down the chimney.

 

To hand was an old frying pan which provided a very easy to make but robust fix:
