UK Oak Decking is part of Quercast Sawmilling, a hardwood sawmill based in Norfolk. Primarily we work with oak and our flagship product is our oak decking, leading to the formation of www.ukoakdecking.co.uk. At Quercast Sawmilling we mill locally grown hardwoods for the UK market, ranging from feather edged cladding through to structural oak… and everything in between. Quercast Sawmilling was born from a need for a reliable UK hardwood sawmill to supply timber for The Wild Deck Company, our parent company that specialises in the creation of bespoke timber structures in natural settings such as boardwalks and bird hides.
Even further back in time, The Wild Deck Company was formed due to demand for wooden structures that originated from our bespoke wooden play equipment company, Flights of Fantasy Creative Play. Flights of Fantasy was the vision of our founder, Russell Bowlby, and begun when Russell decided to transition from the restoration of listed buildings to play equipment after the adoration received by the first playhouse he built for his sons in the late 1980s. The companies are all based in Norfolk, carrying out most of our work at our workshop in Dersingham, although we do also have a couple of local sites for storage and milling.
In short, we’ve been working with wood for decades and the formation of UK Oak Decking was an organic progression.
