Plough Way- Advert from the 1930s

Minetts Sawmills founded in 1887 by Thomas Minett. The sawmill was one of the oldest, if not the oldest trade sawmill in London. Both the sawmill and the adjacent school were hit by bombs on the first night of the Blitz.
Can anyone remember this sawmill and tell us when it finally closed?
