Wild Sussex at the Wood Yard

We sell seasoned logs by the bag or wheelbarrow load. All our logs are locally sourced, mixed hardwoods, properly seasoned and ready to use right away. We also sell, kindling, charcoal, eco-friendly firelighters, log candles, and most things fire-related. We’re trying very hard to be plastic-free and no longer sell our logs in the old plastic nets. Instead, our customers pay a deposit for a sturdy ‘bag for life’ which can be returned and refilled each week.

In addition, we stock a wide variety of sustainable and seasonal products, supporting local coppice-workers, and craftsmen and women. We make our own chopping boards, sell unique items of furniture, log baskets, pottery, honey, chutneys and jams, beeswax candles, and wood-carved items.

In December, we sell locally-sourced Christmas trees, wreaths, greenery, decorations and have lots of great ideas for Christmas presents. There is always something new to see in the shop all year round!

We are open every Saturday throughout the year.
In December, we are open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
