Email Enquiries


Rural Broadband & emails

Our email service is provided via remote countryside broadband; as this is a 'rural' service from time to time we experience difficulties sending and receiving emails.

Some enquiries will take longer to reply to as we may require a few hours to look at timber in order to match your enquiry requirements.

Your email enquiry is important to us; we do receive high numbers of emails and aim to respond within 12-24 hours. If you haven't received an email response within 24-48 hours please call our office to check that your email has been received.

Our answering machine

If you telephone us on a Saturday or Sunday please leave an answer machine message as the office and Yard are not open at the weekend and we will get back to you when we are back at work on Monday.

Interesting Timbers Yard and Office is not open to the public at the weekend or on bank holidays.

Yard Visitors

Yard visitors are welcome during general opening hours however, to avoid a wasted journey, please contact us before you visit, or if you are unable to pay us a visit, we will be happy to select your timber and dispatch it by carrier. When wet the Yard may be muddy, please wear suitable foot wear.

Interesting Timbers is a working Sawmill

Although we usually keep Yard hours Monday to Friday, the yard team occasionally works away from site or may be undergoing staff training; this is why we ask you to contact us before you visit.

SAT NAV & Directions

Occasionally SAT NAVS are sending people into Wells, which is 5 minutes away from our actual location. If you need assistance with directions when lost please call our office for directions.

Please note that some online maps and SAT NAV devices list Wells Road Emborough as Bath Road causing some confusion and sending people to Bath by mistake.

We suggest that you double check our actual location before setting out to visit us.

We are located on the B3139, on the Mendip Hills about 1.5 miles from the A37, on the left as you head towards Wells in Somerset

Distance: we are above the historic city of Wells in Somerset which is a 10 minute drive away. Bath and Bristol are also only a short distance from our yard, 16 miles drive by car. Bruton is also accessible by a short journey of 12 miles as are Frome and Glastonbury, London 2 1/2 hours.

We are fortunate to be surrounded by beautiful country side, pretty villages and historic areas all worth a visit as Somerset has so much to offer. Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole are both within a very short drive and are both sites of biological and geological interest.

Our favourite places to shop and have coffee can be found within ten minutes, our area also provides pleasant designer retail experiences at Kilver Court Designer Village with Mulberry, again only a short drive of 12 minutes from our sawmill. A 1/2 hour journey will take you to the designer outlet shopping complex at Clarks Village in Street.
