The George Street Loft is a family run business established in 1986 by Andrew Hancock who has recently retired. His son Peter now runs the shop with the help of Ben Meinen who is a close family friend.
The business started as a book shop above Jeffs Shoe Repairs (hence the George Street Loft name). A Multi-fuel Stove was fitted as a source of heat and drew lots of attention.
Andrew decided to stock some stoves along side the books and as the time passed it soon became apparent that the stoves would become the main side of the business. A winch was installed to help lift the heavy cast iron stoves to the first floor.
As sales & interest increased in the Wood and Multi-fuel Stoves the decision was made to move to larger premises at 31 George Street. The ground floor was used as the Stove Shop with the upper-floor being dedicated to books. The addition of outdoor space also allowed us to stock and supply Kiln Dried Wood & other fuels.
With the business expanding and requiring more space the decision was made to move the book shop further down the street and focus purely on stoves & flue systems at this address. We now stock a large amount of wood only and multifuel stoves, we also keep many spare parts in stock as well as all other related products such as flue liners, chimney pots, cowls, twin wall systems and fire boards.
Absolutely phenomenal service from the guys at the George Street Loft! From start to finish absolutely amazing! I can not recommend them highly enough! They even came to light it for us!
