For centuries, oak has been the heart and soul of Britain’s most beautiful buildings.
Strong and durable, it has a beauty that no other building material can match.
On the exterior, the timber weathers to a soft, silver grey lustre, whilst inside, it mellows gracefully with age. This building material is ideal for frame construction and provides a sustainable source of raw material. All of our timber comes from managed woodlands, where two or more trees are planted for every one felled.
Oak-framed buildings are enjoying a revival and English Heritage Buildings are leading the way by combining the highest quality craftsmanship with stunning, contemporary design.
