Minsterstone fires are available in 30 main designs with many variations in a theme giving approximately 90 choices of fireplaces. All designs can be customised to your particular needs, or can be made to your own particular design if you wish.
What you have as a standard is the choice of design from the range, the choice of stone and finish, whether rubbed or tooled and, where alternatives are available, a choice of size. There are many new materials that have been developed for fireplace manufacture but none matches the resilience, the solidity, strength and sheer weight of a Minster fireplace. Your fireplace has the capacity for burning solid fuel, wood and coal, indeed was designed to do so, long before the advent of gas fires.

How It All Began
The early success of Minsterstone is owed to its innovative founder, William Hutchings, who first incorporated the business on 5 January 1920, although he had been active as a builder and undertaker since 1885. He was the pioneer in reconstructed stone and developed a system of manufacturing fireplaces, ornaments and architectural dressing that had the local gentry and nobility queuing up for his services.
The classical fireplace designs of the Minster Dillington, Haddon Hall, Chilworthy and Muchelney were first drawn up in the time of William Hutchings. These designs, so powerful yet simple in their lines, are 100 years old now and are just as sought after and just as popular as they were in William Hutchings days. They are truly architectural masterpieces.
