Coalholes – Wool/Silk Twill


Up to 1956 and the passing of the Clean Air Act, coal was the main source of heating fuel in London.

In the wealthier parts of town, a hatch, a coal hole, was bored into the pavement so that the dirty, dusty, coal could be delivered direct to the coal bunker under the road. With over 50 different styles of these cast iron hatches.

They are a celebration of Victorian craftsmanship and design.
