Very interesting information about charcoal burning on your website. We are looking at ways to introduce charcoal burning at Warwickshire College (Moreton Morrell Centre). Do you run courses for this or know anyone who does? Also, a supplier for metal kilns would be useful. Many thanks for your help. Anthony Simmons Countryside Management 01926 312319 (home/business)
