Air Dried English Hardwood & Timber
All our timber is on show and individually priced with the species clearly identified. This means in our Self Selection Centre you can do just that, self-select the timber that you want.
Browsing through the planking you can match the timber to your specifications and compare the characteristics of each piece.
Timber can be planed although only if the board selected is no wider than 20”. Each board is individually priced so you know exactly what you will be paying for and know you are getting what you want. No appointments are necessary so you can spend as long as you like looking through our stock and then we’ll plane and cut to order.
We have a skilled team here at Valley Sawmills who are only too willing to help select timber for a wide range of projects - and are regularly supplying timber to a number of local carpenters, builders, cabinetmakers and craftspeople - why not pay us a visit and see for yourselves!

There are several species of oak available, the most common in the UK being Quercus Robur,otherwise known as English or European Oak. This species of Oak has been rated as having verygood resistance to decay. However, caution should be taken not to confuse it with Quercus Rubra, or Red Oak which is rated as non durable to perishable with poor insect resistance.
For applications such as Oak Sleepers used for garden landscaping, European Oak is the preferred choice with a predicted lifespan in excess of 20 years. Inferior Red Oaks however, will most likely rot within 5 years.
Species to look out for
|Quercus Robur||English/French Oak||Very Good 15-20 years|
|Quercus Rubra||American Red Oak||Poor 5-10 years|
|Quercus Cerris||Turkey Oak||Low to Moderate|
Last time I was in, you asked what I did with the wood I purchased and if I would send in some photos.
Well... here’s the fate of some Yew and Douglas Fir photos attached
See you soon for my supplies!
