    Timber Saw Mill.

    This has hoarderish elements to it, however it seems that it was predominantly a business that produced sawn timber for structure and cladding with storage perhaps as a sideline. There’s a hell of a lot of dry timber that's been stored and just left throughout all the different structures on site, looks to have been there 15-20ish years.

    There are dozens of vehicles dotted around, ranging from a 1949 Bedford MLC (last taxed in 1969) to a 1993 Ford Escort all in varying states of disrepair.

    Can find very little info regarding this little saw mill, it seems to have become abandoned in stages. The ages of the vehicles give the main clues. Visited with Dr. Muttley, whom I dragged kicking and screaming from his pit.

    The light was terrible, it was pissing it down and freezing - Despite that, here are some photos.

    1956 Sunbeam 90 Supreme MK III - only 2250 were ever made. The bonnet in the foreground belonged to a tractor housed in the same building.
