About M. J. Elliott - our history and tradition

M.J. Elliott was established in 1956 by Michael John Elliott. Mike began his business as a tree surgeon and firewood merchant operating across Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.

One of his timber suppliers was a rural sawmill in Norfolk which he subsequently purchased. Together with his wife, Joan, grew White Lodge Sawmill into one of the most widely known and respected sawmills across the counties.

Today, M.J. Elliott is run by Mike's grandson, Max Elliott, and the traditional business is still known today for its excellent, personal service, quality and selection of timber and assorted products.

Max continues the tradition of providing a personal, friendly service, and having grown up on his grandad's sawmill, can advise on all aspects of timber, its uses and properties for specific jobs. Max and his team is always pleased to quote for any requirement however small or large and if you call first to make sure someone's available, you're welcome to come and look at our stock to find exactly what you need.
