Wadhurst is a delightful market town, which is the focal point of the Wadhurst Civil Parish, all within the county of East Sussex. The name is derived from Anglo Saxon times with the term ‘Wada’ thought to belong to a tribe of Saxons. River Bewl, associated with the River Medway, is found within the parish. Hamlets such as Tidebrook and Cousley Wood are included in the geographical area and the town itself shares a twinning link with the French town of Aubers. Wadhurst is seven miles from Royal Tunbridge Wells and lies on the border with Kent. It’s sited on a high ridge within the wood laden hills of the Weald. Towns and villages nearby include Heathfield, Ticehurst, Lamberhurst, Burwash, Hawkhurst, Burwash and Cranbrook.
Wadhurst had been part of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s land, which explains why it isn’t mentioned separately in the Domesday Book record of 1086. In fact, the earliest known mention of the town is ‘Snape in the parish of Wadhurst’ in the Cartulary of Battle Abbey. A charter was later granted to Wadhurst in 1253 by King Henry III, which gave permission for a weekly market and an annual fair on June 29, for the traditional feast day of St Paul and St Peter. Iron also played a major part in the development of the town, as it did with other towns throughout the Wealden District. A hint of this is seen today in the two former ironmasters’ houses, The Old Vicarage and Hill House, in the High Street. There are also other big homes on the fringes of Wadhurst, which show evidence of the trade in its heyday. The Church of St Peter and St Paul has memorials to ironmasters from this past era.
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.
