Fire — One Word Sunday

Hi all 😁 My entry for Debbie at Travel With Intent’s OWS: Fire

I’m also going with a cooking theme; my pics are of the fire in the still working kitchen in the historic Callendar House, Falkirk.

  1. That’s one of those enormous old fireplaces built for serious cooking! I always wonder whether they drew well. We had a large fireplace in our first house (not this large, but a nice size) and it only drew well when the fire was blazing away. After that, it tended to get smoke in the house, so we had a wood-burning stove inserted and that worked wonderfully.

    1. Hi, Cath 😁 The doors at the top are actually part of the rotisserie set up. When they want to cook a large piece of meat on the rotisserie (the chains and cogs you can see), they open the doors, behind which are some vanes on a large cross mounted pole. This causes more air to go over the vanes which turns the pole, and then via a series of cogs and chains turn the rotisserie 😁
