Stonehenge New Visitor Centre Air-Dried British Sweet Chestnut The requirement was to meet the specification of BS1186-3 Class 2 and better. Due to the nature or Sweet Chestnut having large knots, it was opted to supply the product Finger Jointed, in turn created an almost entirely clear product as can be seen in the images below. Over time the tannins will begin to exude from the Sweet Chestnut, allowing the timber to weather down to a silver / grey and allowing the building to be more visually in keeping with English Heritage’s other buildings on-site.
