    There should be a gas fire attached to the front of it.

    I don't know these boiler, it should have a fire front fitted.

    Can you take a picture of what above? Wall? Access?

    Please call a gas engineer, it does not look safe.

    It does have a fire attached to it people , its been painted white if you look at the right hand side the black bracket is attached to fire and the bottom tray clips into this.

    Its an early 70`s boiler prob an old housewarmer or radiation.

    Ignition prob doesnt work so its press white button in and use a taper to relight pilot.

    But at that age you should be changing it as will cost a fortune to run
