This beautiful fireplace called The Melanite will be hand carved in a traditional style and would suit many types of homes.

As you can see from the photograph, its perfect for a multi fuel stoves or woodburners to sit nicely within its opening or perhaps a fire basket with a roaring open fire.

Every fireplace would be unique as the stone is locally sourced and as a natural material will contain some fossiling from the sea bed minerals and creatures and veining dating back to 165 million years ago.
