Does this stove fit a standard chimney, in process of removing existing old solid fuel (coke) back boiler and wondered if the flue would need much alteration or lined

Hi Stephen,
Thank you for your question.
The chimney has been used to vent a coke back boiler, we would recommend you get the chimney swept and ask the sweep to do a smoke and draught test to assess the state of the chimney.
Show the sweep the chimney requirements in the user / installation manual, available on the product page download tab. He will be best able to tell you what the chimney needs.
The basics are:
Must be at least 125mm diameter minimum.
Minimum draught 12 Pa
Capable of withstanding heat of 220°C and above
No other appliance using chimney
No bends over 45 degree angle.
You can find a reputable sweep here - https://nacs.org.uk/sweep-search/
Hope this helps?
Kind regards,
