Railway Sleepers

Railway sleepers are incredibly versatile, which is why they’ve gained popularity among gardeners, landscape architects, and even furniture designers. Lawsons stocks a range of sleepers, including hardwood, in a variety of colours so that you have exactly what you need for your project.

Our softwood sleepers are either spruce or pine and our hardwood ones usually oak, so they work perfectly, whether you want to use them in your garden or for an exterior design project. Our customers have bought garden sleepers for landscaping projects, building garden steps, creating garden paths, designing outdoor furniture, setting garden paths, building fireplaces, stacking benches, putting together table tops, or even just for door lintels. Whether you need softwood or hardwood, untreated or treated, new or used, light or heavy sleepers, you will find Lawsons have exactly what you need at an excellent price.

Cheap Railway Sleepers

Lawsons railway sleepers start at just £13.95 per sleeper (ex. VAT) – we offer some of the cheapest railway sleepers you can find online with a huge range of options to make sure you have the perfect sleepers for your landscaping, design, or construction project.

Railway Sleeper Deliveries

Railway sleepers usually weigh between 20kg and 35kg per metre so a 2.4m softwood one is around 50kg, which can make them awkward to collect (especially if you’re not a trade customer with a van). That’s why Lawsons offer delivery on all of our railway sleepers. There is no minimum order charge and you can buy over the phone, in one of our branches, or online below. Standard orders are delivered kerbside within 2-5 working days, as long as your site is on our standard delivery area. If you would like to arrange a next day delivery, please ensure that you’ve placed the order early in the day and let us know so that we can advise you on whether or not it’s feasible. All railway sleepers are delivered from your nearest Lawsons branch to ensure speedy delivery.
