Avery's Sawmill 1880-1956
A collection of photos and articles, including an extract from one in 1936 (see record 272 for the full article) about the workings at Avery's Sawmill from 1880-1956. Contrary to the family folklore that William Avery had bought this yard after spotting from the train, he was, in fact, the ternant of the Chillingworth family until he acquired the Chillingworth interest in 1908, see record 1156.
A 1979 map extract shows the timber yard still in existence if not in operation.
See 1814 for the later development of this area from Avery's talk.
