More about the company

David Woods Firewood operates from Orchard Sawmill at Rougham (14 miles east of Kings Lynn) having been founded in 1953 by my father, Alec and his new bride, Betty. Apart from firewood, early products included pit props, pallet wood and timber for fencing.

I joined the company in 1970 at the age of 15 and we expanded the business with a staff of several employees. Following changes in the marketplace, we took the decision in 2001 to restrict ourselves to the supply of firewood to the surrounding area. The family involvement was widened further when my son, Robert, joined the company in 1998, at the age of 16. Following customer demand and the introduction of our website, we have been able to further increase our delivery range.
