The Ten Mile Timber Company
The Ten Mile Timber Company is now solely involved in processing and selling firewood. We dry large quantities of 10 inch hardwood logs through the summer months, and demand is increasing year on year.
The timber is sourced locally, sawn and split, and put into one cubic metre ventilated bags to dry under cover. We have a measuring box to ensure consistent quantity. The bags are discharged into our tipping Land Rover for delivery in one, two or three cubic metre loads.
We also supply fresh cut logs, and these can be longer or shorter than 10 inches. These are for customers who order early and want to dry the wood themselves.
VAT is charged at 5% on logs supplied. We offer a stacking service, normally involving two of our staff, and charged at an hourly rate. For this the VAT rate is 20%.
A log is as good as how well it burns.

This is the sawn timber arm of the estate. Planks for sale and samples of our stock can be found at the FERRERS CENTRE, in a unit shared with our furniture maker, Simon Price. The sawmill, and main stocks of planks is two miles away at Coleorton, where the main woodlands lie.
We manage our four hundred acres of mixed woodland in the traditional way, planting, thinning, and felling trees in a continuous cycle which spans the centuries. We are the only estate sawmill in the National Forest, and rare within the whole of England. Rachel Shaw is our sawmill manager.
Cut in various thicknesses we lay down stocks of English timber to dry in our big, well ventilated sheds. Mostly oak, cut ‘through and through,’ we do also quarter saw the largest butts for the beauty of the grain and the stability it creates. The date of cutting is marked on each plank, and sales are by the piece. We also have facilities to kiln dry larger quantities.
Beams and Rafters
Lintel beams, front porches, garden structures; these are among the many and varied calls we receive for bespoke material. Mostly oak, of which we hold good stocks including ‘aged’ oak, favoured by architects working on restoration projects.
