    hi
    While I was in the loft, I found one of the timbers has a black mark as shown in the photo. On touching it is very dry and hard. Is it some sort of natural defect of the wood,not rot?!
    I checked the surroundings and it is all dry.

    Thanks for any advice!

    The photo isnt very clear, but it looks like a knot?
