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 and travertine.
