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...

  • Was contemplating creating a few raised borders for vegetable patches - Zzzzzz- and thought about sleepers - ex-railway of course, rather than deep cover Soviets. Went to a couple of websites before finding yours and began to lose the will to live.

  • Just a quick email to say thank you. The oak railway sleepers were spot on. They were straight, free from twist and (by the time I'd cut it up) worked out perfectly. It's made a really good table that I think my customer will be well pleased with....

  • I found your railway sleeper site – Easy to use, reasonable prices and very obviously you want to please …….. sorry it’s such a piddling little order, though !...

  • Thanks for your excellent service - you may recall we spoke at approx 9am on Tuesday morning - the 14 railway sleepers arrived at just before 9am the following morning enabling me to get started in the garden having been let down by Wickes. Many thanks again. ...

  • Can I first congratulate you on the most excellent railway sleeper website. It is refreshing to find a professional looking site that includes references to Monty Python and lays claim to an intergalactic haulage network. This is in part the reason I chose your company over others I found online....

JOAN'S WONDERFUL SET OF RAILWAY SLEEPER PROJECTS

JOAN'S WONDERFUL SET OF RAILWAY SLEEPER PROJECTS

Many thanks to Joan for her excellent set of photos showing her various railway sleeper projects as they were constructed. A brilliant collection of creations that are wonderful in different ways. The gentle raised beds give the impression of having comfortably existed in the garden for decades - the sign of sensitive landscaping at it's best. The railway sleeper deck is like a little wooden island to relax on, and the wooden slices of railway sleeper offcuts beautifully create a unique pinky red tiled floor. All in all, a definite triumph!
