hidden Gems in stove
As you arrive, the host who meets you is likely to be based at desk made from a large tree trunk and opposite is a table made from slate and wood. Both these pieces and many more have been created by hand locally by John Purcell. John's been making furniture for over 35 years and has worked on other projects for Langdale and Brimstone.
Based locally, John selected the wood and slate specifically for Stove, including the Silver Birch that sits along top of the low internal walls. The round table tops which are Monkey Puzzle Tree, are from a forest in Sedbergh which is less than 30 miles from Brimstone.
The slate in Stove comes from the Burlington quarry in Elterwater no more than 200 metres from where it is now in the restaurant. Slate has been extracted here since the middle of the 19th Century and the current operation can be seen by taking a walk along the footpath on the opposite side of the river to the Langdale Estate heading up the valley from Elterwater.

The Waiter Station
Beech Butt (tree trunk) was from the Sedbergh area and would have been at least 200 years old when felled. To create the waiter desk, the trunk was first gouged out with a chain saw, and then by hand, using finer and finer chisels followed by sanding tools to create the final shape and finish.
The Spalted Sycamore Tables
Spalting is an enzeme in the wood that turns the wood grain black and is a pre-curser to the wood starting to rot. But if caught at the right time, it can enhase the pattern of the wood grain creating a beautiful display. This table was created first by chain saw to get the desired shape and then hand chissled to remove the softer wood and smooth out the contours. The slate came from Burlington quarry in Elterwater.
Monkey Puzzle Table Tops
The Monkey Puzzle table tops featured throughout Stove, also came from the Sedbergh area. The disks were first cut by chain saw, then left for seasoning for over 2 years. When fully dried, the tables tops were repeatedly passed through a sanding machine to get the desired finish.
