Dean Forge was established by Michael Chew in 1969 in the small village of Dean Prior nestling on the edge of Dartmoor.
Robert Herrick, the Royalist poet was vicar of Dean Prior during the 17th Century and the village is still an attraction for many devotees of his work, much of which was written at Dean Prior.
In 1978, when Dean Forge first designed and marketed wood burning stoves, the very local nature of this business was reflected in the name of the original range – Herrick Stoves.
Dean Forge has always been a family run business, Michael, his sons and other dedicated long standing local members of staff have amassed vast expertise and experience in the manufacture and installation of wood burning stoves and multifuel stoves and the business has developed and grown to the point where they can now supply Pellet stoves, Oil stoves, Gas stoves and Electric stoves in both Traditional and Contemporary designs. Dean Forge now also supply and install Traditional Range Cookers.
All of the Dean Stoves own range of Clearburn Wood burning and Multi-fuel stoves are manufactured here at our Dean Forge workshop in the village of Dean Prior near Buckfastleigh set in the rural heart of Devon, and we use cast iron doors cast in a British foundry. We employ our own HETAS qualified installation teams and undertake servicing of both Solid fuel, Gas and Oil fired products.
