Reclaimed Creosoted Sleepers

Traditional reclaimed railway sleepers. Our sleepers are relay grade, which is the top grade of creosoted sleeper (it's possible to re-use them on railway tracks - hence relay grade). They are still second-hand though, so expect some imperfections.

Creosoted reclaimed railway sleepers are liable to leach bitumen and creosote during hot weather. Suitable clothing, gloves & eye protection should be worn when handling creosoted products and waste should be disposed of at a suitable waste disposal site. Creosoted reclaimed railway sleepers should not be used where frequent contact happens i.e. inside buildings, for toys, in playgrounds and in parks or gardens where frequent contact occurs.

Oak Sleepers

Oak sleepers have more character than softwood sleepers. When first cut, oak sleepers are a light brown colour, but they soon weather to a silver/grey.

Sleepers are cut from a lower grade of oak than beams, and as such contain significant defects. These defects might include large knots, splits, wane and bark: An oak beam of a similar size that does not contain these defects would cost about twice as much. If you have any concerns, please visit our yard to inspect our stock.

PLEASE NOTE: The nature of timber is that it may shrink, split and crack in hot weather as it gives up moisture into an atmosphere drier than itself, and may swell in wet weather, as it takes up moisture from an atmosphere wetter than itself.  We are not responsible for this as it is an inherent characteristic of wood; we give this information so you can make informed decisions about using wood.
