Stack has been removed from top to bottom before I bought the house- so my 1900 built terrace has no chimney, is it possible (cost effective) to put a wood burner in using twinwall?
I was thinking an insulated flue & maybe box the flue in with plasterboard in the bedroom above & a skim - I dont mind having a bit of steel in the living room.

Not a shared stack - but it is a party wall.

Is it worth the hassle?

It can and is commonly done. But twinwall suitable for solid fuel costs a small fortune, if it's got two levels and some loft space to go through it all adds up, expect to pay a lot more for the glue than the stove, but only you can decide if it's worth it, even with a chimney you would likley have needed a liner costing upwards of £400 anyway
