Old Chestnuts: changing perceptions of British-grown wood

British-grown wood is a modern, flexible, available and quality material. Myths of yester-year are far behind us:  take a look at today’s realities through our regular series of e-postcards featuring British-grown timber projects and products. Sign up here to receive new ones as they’re issued every few weeks, and enjoy the best of British-grown wood.  

Grown in Britain’s Old Chestnuts series of e-postcards was initiated as part of Grown in Britain Week 2017. Our supporters and licence-holders have generously lent us their projects, products and photographs, for which we’re most grateful.  If you have a possible subject for a Grown in Britain Old Chestnuts e-postcard, please e-mail details and a contact point to:
