Wooden Sleepers are large rectangular timber beams that are commonly referred to as Railway Sleepers, because of their historical usage along the railway network, as a support for the tracks (they have now been predominantly replaced by concrete alternatives).

Whether you are keen to have a piece of British history in your back garden, or just want to create an eye catching feature, Timber Sleepers are an excellent alternative for raised beds, edging (which can look fantastic with decorative aggregates), play areas for children, distinctive steps and/or walkways.

We sell both hardwood and softwood sleepers. Reclaimed Sleepers are commonly treated with creosote, however it is now more common for softwoods to undergo green pressure treatments that are friendlier to the environment. Oak and Tropical Hardwood Sleepers don’t generally need treatments, as they are durable timbers that are resilient against ground moisture.

Customers requiring a higher standard of oak sleeper may wish to consider our “premium” option. We do not guarantee all edges and sides are 100% clear but the raw material is selected to try and minimise deep wane. Although some cracking may be present it will be minimal. End cuts are not always cut completely square. Once again the images will give you a good idea of what to expect.
