Norton's Woodyard

This is where most of my felled timber ends up; the splendid woodyard run by the Norton family.

While I was there, I picked up some fine oak logs, They've been down for a few years now, so should be partially seasoned, and they seem very sound and clear (with few checks, side-branches or knots). Unusually, I was also able to find a lovely piece of English elm.

The douglas fir I sent down to the yard 2 years ago has now returned from the local sawmill. Now 'worked up' as construction timber, it's ready to build the new drying shed.

Now that sounds like the very definition of 'neighbourhood sustainability' (and not a grant in sight!).
