Chatham Saw Mill

Historic Site in Port Blair

Located on Chatham Island (reached by a road bridge), the saw mill was set up by the British in 1883 and was one of the largest wood processors in Asia. The mill is still operational, and while it may not be to everyone’s taste, especially conservationists, it offers an interesting insight into the island’s history and economy. Look out for the bomb crater, left by Japanese ordnance in WWII.
