Common FAQ's

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

    Gravel is calculated by volume. As a guide, 30 sq meters, to a depth of 25 mm (1 inch), will require 1 tonne of gravel.

HOW TO ORDER

Our Neighbours at Northmoor…but not just on the Surface

Smiths have donated 50 tonnes of their Oxford Shingle to resurface the car park of Northmoor Village hall, following an joint appeal by Dion McHugh, who heads the Village Hall committee and Robert Florey, The chairman of the Parish Council.


Andrew Smith with Robert Florey, Chair of Northmoor Parish Council.

 
Northmoor, a beautiful, small and traditional Oxfordshire village is located very near to Smiths flagship operation at Gill Mill Quarry, Ducklington in West Oxfordshire’s lower Windrush Valley. Smiths’ Oxford shingle is produced at Gill mill’s state of the art washing plant and is a predominant feature of the local built environment as well as selling further afield. Andrew Smith, Joint Managing Director of Smiths said:
 
‘We are always willing to consider appeals from the communities around our Quarries. We’re a local company, owned by a local family and it’s important to support projects like this, so our neighbours understand our activities. Mineral extraction is an important feature of the Lower Windrush Valley, contributing to the local economy and developing biodiversity from our restoration programme. We very much add to the character of the local environment. I’m very proud to see our Oxford Shingle on the Village Hall Car park at Northmoor-it helps to maintain what is a really picturesque village.’
