I had a miserable old aunt that used to live in Barrassie on the Ayrshire coast .. she used to make us go out and look for coal to burn in her fire.

It was stuff that got washed ashore from the clyde puffers that used to go up and down the coast many years ago on their way up to the Scottish Isles

On one of the days I'd done a power of work in collecting all these black objects as a youngster, and brought a tray back to her .. the miserable old midden threw half of them back out because she thought they were useless .. I never forgave her .. It dented me as a child forever

Round here it's poplar that's in plentiful supply, the bark looks a little ugly though apart from that it burns well

It depends on what you do with it (e.g. gas fired central heating is more efficient than an open fire), but in general gas is cheaper: http://www.coals2u.co.uk/fuel-price-comparison

Oh, and a mixture of ash and oak on my fire tonight.....
Trust me when I say those days are priceless. Get as many as you can in

I've fitted a Mitsubishi MVHR in our place, it's the future, an eco sensation. Check it out.

The tricky bit is making a 120yo building air-tight, routing two 6" ducts to most rooms and insulating the life out of the place.

We visited a newly built, expensive eco new build yesterday, owned by a retired Doc. He'd had a specialist firm supply, fix, commision and sign off his MVHR. They'd made a complete pigs ear of the whole job.
