I have tried in vain to buy a woodburner in Corfu which will fit into my existing fireplace. Today, I found one in England after a long search and I will now look into buying it and having it shipped out. However, I need to speak to the man who runs The Stove Shop near the Old Port about the fitting, his name is Stamatis. I don't have his 'phone no. with me in England. Hopefully, some of you will know who I mean and will be be able to let me have his no.
Thanks in anticipation,

I asked about stoves last month? If you do a search you will find it. Aka sid said something about the flue sizes of English stoves being 150mm and flue costing £40 per metre where as the Greek size is 100mm and costs 5euro per metre. See what you think. It may give you some questions to put to the Greek stove man.

That is exactly the question which I wanted to put to Stamatis. The stove which I have found in England has a 150mm flue and I wanted to check if that was a standard size. If so, I will buy the extendable flue in Corfu rather than shipping it. It looks like I might be buying the flue here but I will check first.

When I bought a Stanley wood burning stove for my home in Corfu I bought a simple chimney from UK but then had to send it back and buy another one and bring it out (in those days you could bring any amount of luggage on a charter flight). This was because the stove worked best with the special expensive double chimney (think then it worked out at something like £5 an inch!)- maybe you can get these in Corfu now) but the double 'lining' means that they burn more slowly and are easier to regulate- necessary as I cooked on it.
Nick of Technik was involved in the saga and he can probably give you good advice.
Anyway my chimney has been working well for over 20 years now!
