About us

Railwaysleepers.com

WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT RAILWAY SLEEPERS, and this website reflects our desire to encourage everyone to use railway sleepers for landscaping, construction, furniture etc... There's EVERYTHING on this website you ever need to know about railway sleepers! Whether you are planning to construct a raised bed, retaining wall, raised pond or simply steps in the garden, you will find that railway sleepers are a brilliant material to use. Whether you are building a fireplace, door lintel, bench or table top you will discover that sleepers have the answer to all your creative dreams! Whether they are new or used sleepers, softwood or hardwood, untreated or treated, short or long, light or heavy, oak, pine, jarrah, azobe etc.. we have them all in stock & WE LOVE THEM !!

We provide an exciting range of new and reclaimed materials for many customers, ranging from professional landscapers, garden centres, and councils, to private gardeners, and DIY projects. Some people collect from us, whilst others ask us to deliver for them. We can supply any quantity of materials, from single items to bulk orders, & also provide a cutting service. You are welcome to discuss any project. We're not a multi-national company, but a friendly family size business.
