https://burley.co.uk/category/wood-burning-stoves/ (an easy find) There will be a model plate on the rear that states model & nominal kWh / efficiency et al, from that point on ordering the correct parts from Burley should be a cinch. If there is water running down it's clearly not a good sign for the integrity of the building & the potential to in adverse conditions deluge your working fire & douse it (dense smoke potential) Do get hold of a decent led torch / 30 watt flood & shine it up there to see what you are dealing with. & please do not fit a rotary cowl to the top, I always recommend an "H" pot fitting whether it is nice terracotta (& heavy as hell) or a chap & cheerful Galv steel version. Have you rodded your chimney to see how long (how many rods it takes from bottom through top? (will give you an idea of the job facing you as you get round to it) in order to make good & get it signed off / easier on the mind as to how it is operating. Obviously that sort of material if it has "bunged up anywhere" hinders particulate escape, my concern would also be flammability from a spark (its creosote dripping back down after all) ..I would also check as to whether you stove has a filtration system / catalytic "type" scrubber ..some of the burley's do / did have if I recall correctly. ..that should be examined for damage in case the stove has been run badly, I think that part was to be replaced every 5 years or so? (not an expert, but love the burley stoves) Certainly your fire bricks / mica compressed walls might do you a bit longer but are easier to replace if badly damaged that bodge a short term repair. Have a look for that manufacturers plate, hopefully no black dribble has blocked out the data.
