Midland Chandlers Penkridge, £53 investment - lie down and twitch - and we were away. Recently when wondering why there was a small heap of coat dust on the floor, I found the our £53 'bucket' had corroded and the bottom was falling out. The combination of ferrous metal and acid coal had worked their magic and our coal pail had sprung a leak. Given the the new boat, Yarwood, has a decided brass bent we thought that the replacement coal container should be a non ferrous brass, or copper, or zinc. Today whilst out and about I found a brass scuttle, a filthy brass scuttle mind you, and an assortment of fire irons - I struck a deal and now own a semi-filthy brass scuttle and a motley assortment of pokers etc.
