Gayle Mill Trust (GMT) is a registered charity which used to run an historic sawmill at Gayle.  In April 2018 having left Gayle Mill, we set up a new workshop, the Woodcraft Studio at Raygill House Farm, near Hawes.  Our commercial wood services, craft shop and heritage skill courses all operate from this workshop.  We continue to work to keep valuable heritage skills alive.

Gayle Mill Trust has a range of products and services for private and commercial clients. 

These include:-

  • Gates - from bespoke individual entrance gates through to field gates
  • Fencing - all kinds from garden through to field fencing
  • Garden furniture - traditionally built pegged construction, one, two and three seats plus tables to match-please note that these are very popular and so ordering is essential
  • Hand turned craft items
  • Kitchen products range - rolling pins, cookbook stands, salad servers, bread, cheese and chopping boards (can be carved to order) and much more
  • Garden trugs, plant labels, cane toppers, planters, raised wooden gardens
  • Craft and gift range - these change on a regular basis but are all handmade in small numbers - these are available in our craft shop
  • Do you have something that you would like to have designed and made for you by our craftspeople?
  • We love one off projects so please get in touch - we are surprisingly good value for money!

GMT can also prepare your timber for you. 

  • If you have your own trees, we can bring our mobile sawbench to you and turn your timber into valuable beams, boards, posts or fencing material.
  • Please call to discuss further your timber requirements or cutting specifications

We are a registered charity and regularly donate any surplus income to local charities and community projects.
