Default Decent Timber Supplier near Biggin Hill/Bromley?

Folks, does anyone know of a supplier of decent timber within reasonable
travelling distance of Biggin Hill/Bromley (SE London - NW Kent depending
on who you speak with g)

What do I mean by decent timber? Hardwoods for furniture making, there's
plenty of local folks who supply softwoods treated/untreated in all shapes
and sizes but it's specifically hardwoods I'm looking for. Somewhere where
I can walk in and take a look at the stock.

As an aside to put my request into context I've been making furniture items
out of softwood for yonks, it's about time I stepped up my game a little
and I'm thinking of making a feature piece for the living room.

As usual TIA

All the best,

Chris

"We are located in Croydon, South London, England. Our Factory and shop is
located in Tait Road, Croydon - just 5 minutes walk from Selhurst Train
station"

Closer even than Bexley.

I'm spoilt for choice, cheers!
