The timber merchant for all domestic needs

Helping the public

Allen & Orr has always open its doors to the general public and welcome all wood enquiries for DIY projects, home improvements, garden improvements, hand crafting furniture or building a shed. Just drop in to the yard and say hello at our trade counter.

You will find the staff friendly, but more importantly helpful and knowledgeable.

Friendly advice

You will find very knowledgeable and experienced people behind our trade counter. They have been working with timber for many years and will happily share advice to make sure you get the right wood for your project.

Piled up wood


The best quality softwoods are sourced from much colder climates - they are denser, tighter grained and have less knots. Typically, our joinery materials are imported from Sweden, Finland and the North Baltic area in general which we believe enables us to supply a better product than most other outlets

We can provide wood and advice for:

  • Fencing
  • Decking
  • Bench slats

And much more...

Best time to come

The public is always welcome at our yard, but we recommend mid morning through to the afternoon, or weekends.

This is because first thing in the morning our trade customers will be collecting the wood they need for the day. Then there is often a rush at the end of the day, for those planning an early start.
