Woodburning Stoves Have Been Extinguished After the Current 100mph Winds

In fact, there has been no damage to the structure; only the webcam strapped to the top of the roof was damaged in the strong gusts throughout the week. The webcam pointing south west usually shows Bredon Hill, but during the incredible winds, all it displayed was pitch black as the webcam hung on for dear life by a few cables. The strong will of the webcam (tough outer casing) meant that no repairs were required and it was easy enough to reposition and bolt on to the roof to once again display the stunning view of the Bredon Hills (during daylight hours at least).

Woodburning-Stoves are one of the most pronounced online sellers of woodburning stoves and multifuel stoves, with a wide variety of both contemporary and traditional models for customers to choose from; there is something for everyone. The website has recently undergone an overhaul as the taxonomy/navigation was completely redone to optimise navigation for the user,

Scott Morris, E-Commerce Manager at Woodburning-Stoves comments on the website refinements: "It took a great deal of time and patience to come up with a navigation system which would address the way 99.9% of people search for woodburners, whether it’s by brand, output, look or ready to install stoves, they will be able to do that through our unique taxonomy. It was laid out with usability as the sole focus and it may not look like the fanciest thing out there, but it’s fast, it’s usable and above all else, it’s simple.

Enough of all this, back to the central story, the webcam! For those who are really interested and compelled by this webcam, the view it provides can be found on Google Maps and when operational, it really is a beautiful sight. However, with more harsh weather anticipated, who knows how long this dear webcam has left, it could be months, perhaps weeks, maybe even only days; regardless, it will always be remembered as the one who braved the storms.

James Cook, a Web Admin at Woodburning-Stoves.co.uk takes us through some of the webcam perils: "Well, the winds were harsh, brutal enough to dislodge our sturdy cam. We needed some brave soul to venture on to that roof, adhering to all health and safety codes, obviously, and fix that webcam! Eventually the hero emerged, after being bribed with copious amounts of fudge and biscuits, he climbed up the ladder and plopped it back on with a few screws, nuts and bolts and the task was completed. The webcam resumed service the following day and has totalled over 2,000 views, against all odds, the webcam has prevailed."
