    We haven't bought any since last winter (free fire wood ) but we used to pay £15 for 3 25kg bags of standard house coal (collected).

    Last load of house coal we had delivered earlier this year was £110 per tonne, works out at £5.50 per 50Kg bag.

    Our coal man comes from Sheffield to deliver ours, local prices are £6-7 per bag.

    Just ordered some coal this morning. £8.25 for 50kg (hundredweight) bag of small lump coal or £10 for medium lumps which is supposedly excellent quality and premium for I think £12 which is even bigger lumps.

    I found burning wood was better well actually logs. Much cleaner and gives out far more heat than coal on our open fire. We now have a log burner in another chimney so we are using that as its not only clean, but far more efficient that a open fire.

    Ordered today..
    I've just ordered 10x 25KG bags smokeless - delivered at £5.85 a bag (Rural Northumberland) - only use it in the multifuel to keep in overnight otherwise burn logs - they're £80 for a ton (or tonne?) delivered (seasoned and chopped!) I agree that wood is warmer (and smells nicer when you walk in the house) - but it wont keep in overnight (only when it gets VERY cold!)
    Interestingly the coal was ordered off the internet from a Chesterfield Company - the coal man ;ocally is long gone

    Hi, I live in Northumberland too and I'm looking for prices of smokeless coke for my winter supplies. What was the address of the company you brought from online? Thanks

    my coal costs £11.30 per bag for doubles whatever that means
  • paul_h
    This is an old thread, and the prices from last year are way out now... I've had a tonne (20 x 50Kg bags) of best washed doubles delivered this morning for £190, up from £130 this time last year.

    Wholesale coal prices went through the roof earlier in the year.
  • JMartin
    That's cheap. Ours has been £9.10 a bag for 50kg. We use 10 bags a fortnight on our open coal fire with back boiler.

    We've been informed this morning that the business has been sold and it will now be £11 a bag for 50kg and dross (which we used to get for free) will be £8 a bag. Trying to find something cheaper...even if we have to buy a few tonnes at a time.
