Some photos of the fire pit which is being revealed at the end of the coal cellar. John G and John R any further thoughts on this? The brickwork seems to be fire brick. Also now that I can stand in the fire area it is easy to note the remains of an arched ceiling/roof to the viewing platform. Something new every day!
From John Hearle: It's a good thing that we did not extend the viewing platform further.
That's true but once everything is uncovered we may want to move the fence line to give a view of the fire area and into the coal cellar.
