Reclaimed sleepers are fantastic for creating a rustic look in your garden. They do have slightly waney edges and may be a little damaged. They are treated with creosote and tar and should therefore not be used in high contact areas. If in direct sunlight the creosote and tar may ooze and leave a distinct smell.
These sleepers are ideal for stacking or building retaining walls. They do vary in size:
Dimensions: 2.6m x 240mm x 140mm (approx).
WARNING- CREOSOTED PRODUCT
Creosoted railway sleepers should not be used where there is a risk of frequent (ie habitual or constant) skin contact, nor in the manufacture of containers or packaging which may come into contact with or contaminate animal or human food stuffs.
In particular they should not be used inside buildings or playgrounds, or to make toys, garden furniture or picnic tables.
