Our Oak Beams

Our oak beams have been used for a number of spectacular high-profile builds and projects across the UK. We supplied oak beams for the magnificent restoration of Abbey Barn in Glastonbury, for example, as well as Inn The Park, in St James’ Park in London.

Our constructional oak beams are used in building restoration, new construction projects, flooring, sea defences, rivers, canals, as well as boatbuilding, fencing and gates. We stock an extensive range of oak beams, in lengths up to 50 ft suitable for churches, inns, and country houses. From public projects to your own grand design of whatever scale, our oak beams offer unparalleled quality.
