I am on my 4th boiler in 5 years. The boiler in the photo belongs to my Gran and I can remember it humming away in her kitchen for.. well.. as long as I’ve had memories.
It’s certainly older than me.
In fact I’d love to know how old it is. It’s a freestanding Glowworm. If you happen to be a boiler spotter or just respect great engineering, please let me know the name/type/age.
It’s a little tatty and if there are dials and panels still around, I’d be keen to restore it. It’s served the family well and the least I can do is attempt to restore it to its former glory.
Winter is coming and quite understandably my 86 year old Gran is rather attached to her Glowworm.
