EVERYTHING YOU EVER NEEDED TO KNOW ABOUT RAILWAY SLEEPERS but were afraid to ask! Whether you are planning a raised bed, retaining wall, raised pond or some steps in the garden, you will find that railway sleepers are brilliant to use. Whether you want new or used railway sleepers, softwood or hardwood, untreated or treated, we have 1000's in stock & WE LOVE THEM! Some might say that this makes us a little obsessive, having recently built the largest railway sleeper projects collection in the world, but we are proud to say that we equally care about our customers & enthusiastically supply our railway sleepers throughout the UK.

The driver was great, very patient despite horrendous traffic on the M5 and even though some thoughtless idiot had parked in a stupid place and blocked his way out. Thanks again...

    Piers Angliss

  • Only a small project – but I just wanted to say we are delighted. Our builder/gardener hadn’t encountered railway sleepers that could be creosote/tar free.

Hundreds of reclaimed railway sleepers slotted into steel RSJ,H or I beams

Hundreds of reclaimed railway sleepers slotted into steel RSJ,H or I beams

In the busy world of building supplies, you need practicality, efficiency and durability for your bays of materials. As loading machines push and knock against the walls every day, the steel RSJ framework and hardwood railway sleepers take quite a battering, and they are up to the task! The added bonus with this system of slotting railway sleepers into these steel channels, is that should one railway sleeper ever break, you can slide it out and replace it! Normally seen in commercial settings, this method is gaining popularity in domestic projects, where the landscape design requires both raw strength, practical construction and an industrial look.
