200 year Old Pitch Pine Planks

0.01

The provenance of these planks stems from Dunadry Mill. Dunadry means The Middle Fort (Dun-Eddery) and it was so called because of its position as the middle one of three forts on the road which ran from Tara to Dunseverick. This area was well used in the legendary days by the Red Branch Knights of Ulster. In more recent days, perhaps around the sixteen hundreds, a paper mill was founded by one Daniel Blow. The Blows were said to be court printers to William III and to have printed the court circulars at the time of the Battle of the Boyne. The mill, on the river at Dunadry, continued making paper and to be known as Blow’s Mill until the turn of the 19th century. Linen manufacture, in all its various stages then started and processes from scutching to bleaching continued at Dunadry until the nineteen twenties.

In all of our experience these are the most magnificent pitch pine planks we have come across to date. The grain is exceptional and has no knots. It has a beautifully aged patina and we can envisage these planks making a great top for a table or bench but you might have different ideas! We have many of these planks available.
