Photo of the brick setting for a Cornish Boiler.

The flue gas flow is a bit confusing.
When it exits at the rear of the boiler,
it splits and makes a second pass along side the boiler.
Then it meets at the front and drops down,
to make a third pass under the boiler,
before exiting to the stack.

Spent 35 years as a Power Engineer,
so feel free to ask questions on piping, equipment, etc.

Both plants I worked had their starts in the early 1950s,
so there was a interesting array of equipment to be operated.
Some of which perhaps should have been in a museum!.
