    Depends on water pressure either an unvented cylinder or a normal tank feed cylinder

    It made me think asbestos when I saw it !
    It may just be that the look reminded me of Boilers lagged in pig muck. It may be something completely innocent. Worth a mention though.

    It did cross my mind that it may be asbestos. Will have a closer inspection.
    Thanks

    Elson unit as mentioned above. Covered in insulation then hardboard. E7 combination unit or unvented. I'm guessing your hot water pressure is quite bad?
