    Anyone any ideas of what to do with a supply of very, very old timber? Currently it is used as fire wood, which seems like a great shame as we think it could be 2 or 3 hundred years old.

    Yes it does seem a shame, depends on what it is and size.

    I am turning my various roof beams from a loft conversion to garden seats, raised beds/ponds and props to hold my firewood. The smaller bits got used by others to build bird and bat boxes.

    Depends where you are. In Bristol there is the Bristol Wood Recycling Project that takes old wood and either sells it on or turns it into stuff.

    Try and find out which species it is Novy. If by chance it turns out to be pitch pine then it could be worth a lot of money.

    We are reusing large old beams as beams and posts to support first floor and roof. Old timber quite often has a lot of character as is, or looks really good if cleaned up. Also doesn't move anywhere near as much as green timber.
    Large section timbers are worth a bit as they are not always that easy to come by.
