I’m starting to do a lot of these Clock Blithfield 5 Multi-Fuel Stove; this is an example that I swept recently in Dullingham near Newmarket. This is because the Clock range of stoves are now being installed by Cut Maple Stoves of Sturma/New England and they seem to be very popular with their customers. To my mind, they are a very solid, straightforward make of stove, with a large firebox and glass window so that it is easy to see the burn. They are not difficult to dismantle and put back together, but all the stove components do have to be removed from the appliance in order to access the flue. This includes removing the multi-fuel great, which I can tell you from experience is rather heavy! Prior to the stove being installed, this customer was using the inglenook fireplace and had for many years been resistant to change. Now having had their Clock stove installed, they say that they would never go back to their old open fire as the stove is much safer and burns so much more efficiently. They told me that when they were using the open fire the room never really got properly warm and that really it had been more for show. But now that they have their lovely Clock stove, they can turn down their central heating as the stove warms the room so nicely.
Clock Stoves are a British stove company and are based in Trafford, Manchester, and are part of the Efficiency People Trading Limited (TEP). They manufacture a small range of wood-burning stoves which include: Blithfield 5, Blithfield 5 Compact, Blithfield 8Kw, Blithfield DS, Blithfield CS5 and the Sudbury. Their website tells us that: Here at Clock Woodburners we are passionate about designing and building efficient, effective and stylish stoves. But choosing a stove is about more than just how it works and what it looks like, it’s about how it makes you feel. Warm, cosy and secure is how you deserve to feel at home, and creating this feeling is at the heart of everything we do. Our aim is to create a range of stoves, all designed and built here in the UK, that not only lift your spirits and warm your toes, but leave you secure in the knowledge that you have chosen a highly efficient stove that is built to last.
Our very first stove was built in 2016 following a commission by Blithfield Hall, a Grade 1 listed private home in Staffordshire. The stove was a great success and led to the development of our first production-line model which we named the Clock Blithfield 5. Through our growing dealer network and customer base we listened to feedback and next developed the Clock Blithfield Compact 5, a smaller, but no less perfectly formed, version of its big sister the Clock Blithfield 5. We were over the moon when this stove beat all its market rivals to be named Wood Log or Multi-Fuel Appliance of the Year at the 2018 Hearth & Home Exhibition, not bad for the new kid on the block!
We have also recently unveiled the Clock Double Sided. We believe this stove is the first double-sided stove on the market that is fully 2022 compliant. With crystal clear glass for a superb view of the warming, flickering flames which, incidentally, burn 70% more efficiently than the 2022 legislation actually requires, you are going to want to know more about this beauty.
