Shotley Pier: Boards Laid!

It’s been a busy month at Shotley Pier, as we provide the reclaimed Greenheart that will take centre stage in the restoration of this 1894 marine structure.  The characterful & highly durable boards have now been laid, and we could not be more proud to play our part helping ensure that this historic landmark can be walked on once again.

This beautiful FSC certified reclaimed Greenheart (from Woolwich Ferry) has now started its new life as the first 30 meters of the pier.   It’s the hardest timber in the world, so we’re sure it’ll have a long life in this beautiful spot.
