Redditch shot blasters are good - have used them several times, but that's always been for shot- rather than bead- blasting.

Looks like you have reached the stove enamel! If you want to spare yourself the hours of hard labour, there are sub-contractors who will strip using hot acids, or bead blasting both of which will do the job. Of the two, the acid is probably less mechanically destructive, and leaves a good base for painting. The bead blast finish also provides a good key, but a phosphate etch is best for maximum protection in both cases.
