It all began when Neil Peskett bought a pair of salvaged oak lock gates, thinking that someone ‘out there’ would surely want to use the still-sound timber for a project. He was right! It quickly became apparent that there was a lack of high quality reclaimed oak available in the UK. And so it was that Traditional Oak and Timber Company (Trad Oak) was established in 1990. Neil soon grew the business to include structural air-dried oak beams and put his mind to becoming one of the main suppliers of quality oak, both old and new, in the UK.
Trad Oak continues to meet the growing demand for the highest quality reclaimed and air-dried oak beams. We are set in the heart of the beautiful Sussex countryside, near ‘Sheffield Park’ National Trust estate and the heritage Bluebell Railway.
Traditional Oak and Timber now has one of the largest stocks of old reclaimed oak beams and air dried oak beams in the U.K. Structural and beautiful, these oak beams can be used for most construction and renovation projects and bespoke furniture making. In addition, we have a vast stock of reclaimed oak flooring and oak fireplace mantels.
Our company provides a full range of oak beam services. This includes cladding steel RSJs to the supply of aesthetic, non-structural oak beam joists. We also have a full oak framing service for the fabrication of oak porches, oak framed houses, garages and more. Our delivery service is competitive and comes with a personal touch.
We are also able to offer a full range of architectural handmade ironmongery. Please enquire about our Suffolk latches, Tee hinges, Strap hinges, door handles, knobs, knockers and window furniture.
