Vastern Timber is one of the largest British hardwood sawmills in the country, specialising in cutting and manufacturing native grown timbers including English oak, sweet chestnut, ash, sycamore and larch. A family business founded in High Wycombe in 1904, it is owned and run by three members of the Barnes family: Peter, Jon and Tom, who represent the third and fourth generations of family working in the company.

Increasing demand for timber products led to the acquisition by the Barnes family of the Vastern Timber Sawmill in Wootton Bassett in 1974 and a second sawmill at Studley, near Chippenham, in 1982.

Working closely with architects, builders, joiners, furniture makers and timber framers, Vastern Timber provides a professional yet personal service tailored to the unique needs and wishes of clients.
