I came across this solid fuel stove/Range cooker at a thatched address in Clavering. I had not seen one of these or was familiar with the make, having not come across it before. It is a very compact little stove, with a tiny but long fire-box. Even so I should think that you would not get a great deal of fuel into it at any one time, even using coal. Looking at the stove I can not be certain whether it is really old and has been restored, or a retro style reproduction? I have has a look on the internet and the only reference I can find to Stratford stoves is that Villager in the West Country used to make a Stratford stove?
