Shire do not use auction clearing houses to buy their timber. Shire know the quality of their timber and will not change their principles so that when you buy a Shire Garden Building you know it is made from the best timber from sustainable forests. This makes a Shire garden building last much longer as the timber will not rot so readily.
The timber is shipped directly into the port of Wisbech and unloaded directly at Shires own quay adjacent to the Shire’s factory. The timber is then prepared in house so Shire control all the processes required to manufacture a garden building.
