A Surrey sawmill that has been closed for more than six months is to re-open following a restructuring to make it financially viable.

Surrey Wildlife Trust (SWT) closed Norbury Park Wood Products in March because it could no longer cover its £50,000 annual losses.

But the trust said it would re-open the mill on Tuesday after seeking business advice and making some staff redundant.

The sawmill occupies part of the 1,300 acres of Norbury Park.

The park is located in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which SWT has leased for eight years from the county council.
