IN BED WITH NORFOLK LAVENDER

24 October 2015 / Posted in: Railway Sleeper News

Amongst the acres of fragrant lavender, there are numerous railway sleeper raised beds to be found perching against the agricultural buildings that make up Norfolk Lavender.

Blake's industrial railway sleeper table

18 July 2015 / Posted in: Railway Sleeper News

A really original and unique industrial style table using dramatically weathered Jarah railway sleepers to support a one-off cast concrete table top.

A very impressive creation that combines and contrasts the rough, beaten finish of the reclaimed railway sleepers and rough edges of the cast concrete, with the polished concrete table top.
