Want to know a bit more about our building?

It was built early in the 19th century as part of the industrial revolution. As the name suggests it was a fully functioning wood mill, taking deliveries from Emperors Wharf of timber from the forests of Northern Europe via the river Ouse. Most of the wood cut here was sold to local carpenters.
