Great British Timber

We’ve decided to brand our output as Great British Timber because we’re proud of the fact that we know where our timber comes from and that it hasn’t cost the earth to fell and transport it. We’re also proud of the fact that Great British Timber has created much-needed employment in the rural locations from which we extract it, and we’re proud of the great people who work here at our mill who use their skills and the very latest sawmilling technology to deliver the best of British to you and your business.
