    We have pulled up an old carpet with the plan to restore the old floorboards.
    However, we discovered a concrete hearth (approx 2 inch thick). It is already cracked and it moves when a crowbar is placed under it. We would like to remove and cover the space with floorboards. However, there is a metal sheet the width of the hearth that pokes out from the wall. Does anyone know what this is and how we can remove it?
    Many thanks in advance

    Don’t know for sure, but probably added at a later date. Angle grinder, sharp chisel will cut through it.
