Railway sleepers are now a quintessential part of garden design, although this is a fairly recent trend, and one helped in no small part by us. We supplied the first railway sleepers to both `Ground Force` and `Home Front: in the garden` back in the mid 1990's and have supplied them to many TV programmes and famous buildings, organisations and projects since then.
We still hold one of the largest stocks in Southern England and have tens of thousands of customers, many of whom have made some truly wonderful things with our sleepers. One of the challenges that our customers now face is the wide range of choices to make when selecting sleepers, so in order to maintain the trouble-free experience our customers already enjoy we have now divided our sleepers into 2 individual areas - - - Traditional Reclaimedsleepers - and New Sleepers

The full list of prohibitions, according to EC & EEC regulations, is as follows: Inside building, whatever their purpose. In toys. In playgrounds. In Garden furniture. In gardens where there is a risk of `frequent` skin contact – “frequent” is advised by the DTI to mean “habitual or constant” so no furniture or leaning posts! The practice observed by us and all our customers is simply to wear gloves when handling treated sleepers.
