The boiler room at Wightwick Manor, in the mid 1990s.

Centre left of the picture can be seen the brick enclosure housing the remains of Constantine's Convoluted Stove. Fresh air enters the boiler through an external opening in the left side of the duct within the brick pier to the rear left of the boiler casing. The clean heated air travels to the hot room through the duct within the brick pier to the rear right of the boiler casing. The copper pipes, wide diameter pipes and brick pier to the right are all part of the later modern boiler installation.
