Secondhand building materials
are a really valuable resource, and it is important to encourage
the recycling of materials. However please don't support the
market in stolen architectural antiques -if you believe you are
being offered stolen goods, you could check with the extensive
listing at SalvoWeb
before parting with your money.
If you are involved in demolition
works, or simply removing out of date components, then why not
contact a salvage yard. It may simply save you the cost of disposal,
but then again you might make something out of it, as well not
contributing to landfill waste tips.
June -Knebworth House, Hertfordshire
Fair Salvo Fair
is an extesive outdoor exhibition of architectural salvage, garden
