After hunting through reclamation yards, ebay and wood recycling projects I remember:

This local sawmill uses oak, pine and other soft woods from the area of these walks and Surrey Wildlife Trust's own sites. In many cases these are heathlands where Scots pine is being removed for the revival of threatened wildlife, perfect.
