    I have had problems sourcing refractory, insulation and firebricks locally (despite being on the edge of a major city!), so I thought I'd start a thread to list the ones I've found to help anyone else struggling.

    Perlite : Wakefield hydroponics, Thorpe lane farm, wf3 3bx 0113 282 0961 (100l perlite £16)
    Firebricks : calderys Whitehall Ind estate, ls12 5jb 0113 263 6268 firebricks £2.28 hotface 14.92(25kg) +vat
    Fire clay: CTM Doncaster. 01709 770801 dn12 1eq

    Hopefully, this will help anyone building wood stoves, rocket heaters, furnaces or forges.

    Not exactly sure where they are. I ordered over the phone and a truck delivered in a few days. Send the cheapest at the time but shop around, obviously.
