We operate a fleet of MAN 8 wheeler tipper wagons, driven by very experienced drivers who are long term employees. We strive for customer satisfaction, and specialise in awkward jobs involving split loads, part loads and timed deliveries. Usually next day delivery is guaranteed providing the product is available. Our Sales Manager Darren Crossland puts every possible effort into getting the customer their product at the correct time.
Most aggregates are available in both Sandstone/Gritstone & limestone.
We also undertake general haulage at competitive prices.
We are based in Shepley, Huddersfield, but we collect and supply materials from all over Yorkshire and beyond.
We supply and deliver organic top soil ideal for shrub planting, seeding, turf laying, sports field construction, tree planting, root balled trees, domestic gardens and landscaping. Manufactured using organic compost and overburdened sand from quarries (materials that would otherwise end up in landfill) it provides a rich and organic growing medium for healthy plants and trees. The high quality top soil has been recognised across the UK. It has been specified on many high profile projects.
The top soil is one of the most comprehensive in the industry. As it is a manufactured soil it has a low stone content. Due to the lightweight nature of the topsoil there is more volume per load as compared to natural as dug soil. This also results in fewer road miles and journeys to fulfil commitments on larger projects.
The top soil requires no additional fertiliser for the first season. Topsoil is perfect for landscaping and construction projects that are focused on environmental sustainability and maintaining their green credentials.

Sourced from various quarries around west Yorkshire, our gabion stone is commonly used as the fill material for gabion baskets.
These baskets are one of the methods used in ground stabilisation works, being used for retaining walls of terraces or other landscaped areas, river and stream banks, embankments and bridge abutments. It is a fairly simple system of filling specialist wire baskets with stone, stacking the baskets on a prepared base and in some situations holding them to the face with ground anchors.
Our gabion stone is a crushed gritstone available in various sizes. Most commonly used is the 200-100mm stone, but 150-75mm and 80-50mm sizes are also used in specific landscape projects. Please note that these sizes are approximate.
The mixture of stone and the various sizes of baskets, have opened up a whole new use for the gabion basket. Such as the civil engineering projects mentioned above to creative landscaping designs for both public areas and private gardens. The baskets can be manufactured in welded or woven wire mesh. Welded mesh provides a more rigid face and is popular for architectural applications, gabion cladding and free standing walls. Woven wire mesh is more flexible and is able to accommodate differential settlements, which makes the specification beneficial for civil engineering works and large retaining walls.
A 1 cubic metre gabion basket requires approximately 1.7 tonnes of stone.
