New AGA insulation

Ever wondered what your AGA looks like under the hob? Wonder no more! Below is a 4 oven 60′s vintage AGA with its top off (so to speak!). The vermiculite is topped up, everything cleaned out where needed and the high temperature wool insulated top blanket replaced as part of my AGA efficiency improvements. If your hob is too hot to touch anywhere other than the hotplates themselves then you probably need some new insulation like this!
