An astonishing transformation

These two aerial view of our Bishop’s Castle sawmill were taken about 50 years apart in the 1960’s and earlier this year.

We’ve circled two points common to each to help you get orientated. They’re about all that remain of the original buildings. The rest in the modern picture is the result of well over £25 million invested in state of the art saw milling – and the modern picture and that figure exclude the new Timber Treatment Centre which is in the course of construction and is largely out of shot.
