FLOORING UNDER A WOODBURNING RANGE: Have just removed old

Customer Question

FLOORING UNDER A WOODBURNING RANGE:
Have just removed old wobbly brick and stone (broken) base under a woodburning stove down to a deep layer of sand (house 2-300 years old). I want to extend the pamment floor(2" vintage pamments) in rest of room over this area (4ft x 7ft) and replace stove with a heavy woodburning range. I think I need a reinforced concrete base over the sand, how thick should this be? Are there any other options? Thanks

Plumbers_Mate : You should cast a 50mm thick slab for it to sit on.
Plumbers_Mate : an alternative would be to use 50mm paving slabs if you can get a patterned one to match the room
