Aga range cooker re-enamelling in Bedfordshire

Some good pics from a re-enamel near Bedford recently, another good example of poor insulation under the hob. With only a thin layer of insulation between the hotplate barrel (600dc) and the hob you can imagine how much heat was disappearing into the kitchen without cooking a single sausage! Solved with a vermiculite top up and a new super thick top blanket on top before the hob was replaced.
