Meet the Camelot Real Fires team

Meet the Camelot Real Fires Team

After a real busy period designing and making hand-made open fires we delighted to introduce to the Camelot Real Fires team.

Paul Shaw – firstly meet Paul, owner and managing director of Camelot Real Fires. Paul has extensive knowledge and expertise in designing and making open fires and canopies that work after taking over the business from his father in 2010, making Camelot a business a family heritage.

Paul also has specialist knowledge of open fires for thatched properties and he’s a qualified HETAS (Heating Equipment Testing and Approval Scheme UK) installer with many years experience.

Paul loves open fires as you can see from this picture below of Paul with his own fire. So does his dog, Eric!
