About Alsford

The largest Timber Merchant in the South East.

Alsford Timber has been around since 1882. Everything that makes up the modern world has happened in our lifetime - we've literally seen it all. Of course, there's been enormous change. From our humble beginnings selling timber and fencing in South West London, we've grown to become the largest timber merchant in South East England, with 18 branches across four counties we trade in Kent, Surrey, Essex, London, East Sussex and West Sussex. But we're still true to our founders' values of expertise and excellence in everything we do.

We've spent over 130 years creating the Alsford brand you see today. Because, like you, we believe in building things to last.
