  • What size gravel should I use for pathways and drives?

    The most common sizes we supply are 10mm and 20mm gravel. 10mm is usually best for pathways, as it is easy to walk on. The 20mm is best for drives, because the smaller 10mm gravel may get into the treads of car tyres.

  • How much gravel do I need to buy?

History

Aggregates supplier uk

Smiths Bletchington is a long established group of companies, primarily serving the construction industry in and around Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties. Family owned since it's inception, the business is now served by the fourth generation of the Smith family.

Founded at the turn of the 20th century by Arthur Smith, the great grandfather of the current family Directors, the group has grown from its roots in agricultural contracting and steam haulage, to its present status as a leading supplier of construction materials.

As operators of a major gravel plant, and a sizeable limestone quarry, the group is able to offer a wide range of washed sands, gravels and crushed limestone, for delivery on its fleet of company owned tippers. Further products offered include the merchanting of other aggregates, the production and sale of natural Cotswold block stone, and the production and distribution of recycled aggregates.

In addition the group provides haulage, muckaway, plant hire and contracting services for site excavations and groundworks, as well as contract crushing.

Farming and leisure fishing complete the range of activities undertaken.

Still based at its original location, the Group's Head Office is at Enslow, near Bletchington, Oxfordshire, where the Directors and staff aim to provide a high quality service to their wide range of customers, in keeping with their enviable reputation earned in over 100 years of trading.
