Sounds like the OP is “renovating” her Edwardian house by stripping out all that's Edwardian..

Anyway, I doubt there's value in the floorboards which would have been up and down so many times over the past century (plumbing/wiring/central heating) that in my experience they're usually beyond useful life and end up on the skip.  Especially since so many homes today are taking the solid/engineered oak route.  Same for staircase and skirtings.

As for the fireplaces they might have a small value (especially if they come with original tiles) .  Try the fireplace shop on The Avenue (opposite end of Speldhurst Road).  They sell for hundreds of pounds – but sellers don't get anywhere near that amount because of the genuine “renovation” work needed to give them new life..
