Firewood for sale


As a by product of woodland and tree management work the Blackwater Valley Countryside Trust has a quantity of firewood for sale. The wood has been cut to approx. 25 to 30 cm long. Although reasonable efforts have been made to remove all nails , wire etc. we cannot guarantee that the firewood will be completely free of these.

The firewood can be collected from Ash Lock Cottage, Aldershot, GU11 2PS, on Friday afternoons between 1.30pm and 4.00pm, costing £3 per bag or £10 for 4 bags. Please either email or phone 01252 331353 to arrange collection. You will need to bring and fill your own bags (rubble bags are suggested) but if you don’t have any bags these can be purchased at Ash Lock for £1 each.

All money collected from the sale of this firewood will be used to further improve the environment of the Blackwater Valley.


About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
