Uckfield is a charming rural town located beside the River Uck, a tributary of the River Ouse, in the Wealden District of East Sussex. Known originally as ‘Uckefeld’ as recorded in 1220, with the meaning ‘Ucca’s open land’. Uckfield was known as a resting place for pilgrims doing the Lewes to Chichester and Canterbury routes. The settlement grew in time, and gained a particularly rum reputation for puddings with a pub in Pudding Cake Lane serving pudding cake to weary travellers and residents alike. Residences developed near the river’s bridging point and the current museum in the town is the former Bridge Cottage, which dates from the 15th century. Development has continued over the years with the New Town and High Street being particular areas where dwelling places sprang up in time.
Church Street has played a major role in the development of Uckfield. The route was constructed near the medieval chapel and within the pilgrims route from Canterbury to Winchester. That means that in the 1500s, the area would have been well-known to travellers passing through the town on foot or by horse. Uckfield had been part of the Manor of South Malling. Today, there are interesting post-medieval buildings in Church Street such as the old grammar school, Malt House, Bakers Cottage, and Church House. All of these buildings retain great architectural and historical merit, pleasing to the eye whether you are a resident or a visitor to the town of Uckfield.
Competent Person Registration Scheme - HETAS
The installation, replacement or any alteration to the position of a solid fuel combustion appliance (wood burning stove) is subject by law to building regulations. Competent person schemes were introduced by the Government in 2002 to allow individuals to self-certify that their work complies with these regulations; as an efficient alternative to notifying the local authority or using an approved inspector. I am part of such a scheme - see below - which gives customers reassurance that my work is legally compliant.
HETAS is the official body recognised by the Government to approve solid fuel domestic heating appliances, fuels and services including the registration of competent installers and servicing businesses. To achieve this objective, HETAS operates a registration scheme that supports installers and businesses involved in this area to work safely, efficiently and within the various regulations which apply to the work involved.
TLC Liners and Stoves is HETAS registered and, after commissioning your wood burning stove, a certificate will be issued.
