We are passionate about railway sleepers..

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. We even have a support programme for those ADDICTED to railway sleepers!

What our customers say...

  • Just a quick note to say that we’ve got the railway sleepers — all look good and the quality is certainly up to expectation and our requirements. My thanks also to the driver — very helpful and it’s not always that drivers are good as customer-facing members of the team. All in all a very successful purchase — I’ll spread the word. ...

    Peter McCourt

  • We are just starting to landscape our garden and my brother, who lives in the UK suggested we use railway sleepers. An online search gave me your FANTASTIC website - I'm unable to find anything that matches you, online, here in Okotoks (close to Calgary). Do you happen to know where I can purchase as good a quality as you have of railway sleepers here in Alberta, by any slim chance ?? ...

  • Your oak barrel arrived today reeking of whisky and very nicely packed on a pallet which the driver kindly brought up the drive to the door. I'm very pleased. I am not sure whether I would rather stick my head inside them and breathe the whisky fumes or fill them with soil!...

  • The railway sleepers and fixings were delivered safely this evening. Now all we have to do is to construct the raised beds! Thank you for your help....

    Ian Stephen.

  • Hello We recently took delivery of some Dutch grade 1 used square Oak railway sleepers. We bought them as edging for a new lawn. They are great. We like them so much we have decided to buy some more please, if you have them, and make a raised bed, too. And more edging....

DAVE & JANE'S PATIO & PATH WITH OLD AZOBE RAILWAY SLEEPERS

DAVE & JANE'S PATIO & PATH WITH OLD AZOBE RAILWAY SLEEPERS

A very imaginative way of using old Azobe railway sleepers to link the front and back of the garden, by creating an eye catching pathway and hard standing area to sit the wooden shed on. Particularly attractive is the way in which you've displayed the 'train track' side of the railway sleeper to highlight the timber's railway history and character. Really effective.

CALKE ABBEY'S COMPOST BAYS WITH OLD RAILWAY SLEEPERS & STEEL H-BEAMS

CALKE ABBEY'S COMPOST BAYS WITH OLD RAILWAY SLEEPERS & STEEL H-BEAMS

Calke Abbey is a wonderful place to visit with miles of sweeping parkland and a rambling 'time capsule' mansion with abandoned rooms, peeling wallpaper and a vast collection of strange and unique objects – presented and preserved exactly where the National Trust found them. Top of my list is the fantastic walled working vegetable garden with all the original tools and garden buildings largely untouched. Of course any amazing working garden needs to process tons of plant compost and huge bays have been created by slotting old railway sleepers into steel I or H-beams
