Welcome to Ashcroft Stone Merchants and Hauliers. Established in 1935 and now based in Leyland, we have gained a reputation second to none for providing first class products, both to the trade and the public, backed by a friendly and efficient service.

Ashcroft Stone Merchants offer a wide range of decorative gravels and chippings from stock for all your landscaping needs. We can offer gravels and chippings either collected from our premises at Centurion Way in Leyland, Lancashire or delivered in bulk bags complete with a crane off load for your convenience. We will deliver as little as 1 bulk bag up to a full load of 12 bulk bags at competitive prices. For the bigger job we also have a fleet of larger vehicles carrying from 10 tonnes up to 20 tonnes which we can supply direct from the quarry throughout the North West.

The choice of gravels sourced from all over the UK, is varied ranging from golden gravel, Cotswold gravel, Staffordshire pink gravel, Welsh green slate chippings, Yorkshire mix gravel, and Welsh green granite. We also have a range which we stock in bulk bags including Northumberland red granite, Lydd Pearl gravel, black gravel, Buchan pink granite, Welsh plum and blue slate chippings and marble chippings from the Isle Of Skye.

We are always increasing our product portfolio, our latest range from Caledonian Stone include blue, green and rustic Slate Monoliths in various sizes, polished pebbles, Pentland paddlestones, Strathisla paddlestones along with Scottish Highland pebbles, cobbles and highland boulders.

For inspiration all of the gravels, chippings and flags are on display at our site in Leyland and can be viewed at any time.
