Anderwood Inclosure – Sawmill – Post WWII

Anderwood Inclosure - Saw Mill site survey - 001 © New Forest National Park Authority
Author: Gareth Owen

In this area you will find a range of concrete plinths and platforms many of which have metal ‘bolts’ or pits imbedded.  This is the site of, what is thought to be a post WWII, sawmill. The sawmill machinery was once attached to the platforms to secure them in place.

Unknown dates for the setting up and removal of this sawmill.
