His name was Dave Weller and he lived in Steam Mill Cottages, where his children still visit sometimes. Our memory is that he worked in Hazelbury Woods, using the timber of Ian and Dinni Pollard. It was only part-time work and he later moved down to Cornwall.
What people don't know is that his charcoal won a national prize. It was voted best in Britain ahead of big supermarket brands on an Esther Rantzen consumer affairs programme on BBC TV. A very proud moment for us as one of his outlets. Keith & Carla Pask
