Help is always on hand!


At Earnshaws we have been quietly developing our business for seven generations and today we are one of the North’s largest suppliers of timber garden fencing. We are also one of a rare breed of companies who have proudly grown under family ownership for over 150 years.

We seek to offer customers a unique retail experience, excellence in customer service and a wealth of garden design, landscaping and outdoor lifestyle inspiration.

Both of our centres are located in accessible locations, with ample free parking, where customers can explore the wide choice of carefully selected garden landscaping products and outdoor living ranges available. Everyone is free to browse and interact with on-site displays in peace and quiet but help and advice from specialists is always on hand!

Ready to take away!

A huge range of stock

Our on-site shops have all the tools, accessories, preservatives, fixings, ironwork and finishing touches needed to complete any project – making us an impressive one-stop-shop for every garden makeover project – with huge stocks ready to take away.

Finally, our experienced counter staff will organise delivery if you need it and recommend a contractor if you require a professional to help put your plan into action.

Change with the seasons


You will normally find we have what you are looking for in stock at all of our centres. However, from time to time, less popular lines may only be stocked in bulk at our Midgley Centre.

We will happily transfer the stock you need for collection at your nearest centre, so please feel free to ask the staff on site. If you are looking for a very specific line or a large quantity, please phone ahead to check that it’s in stock.

Green is our colour!

Sustainability PROGRAMME

At Earnshaws we have always had a strong interest in ecological and environmental matters. From sourcing our material to managing our woodland, we have always worked to the very best practise.

We always try to minimise fuel miles on all our outwards deliveries and purchases, and try to source locally wherever possible.


Caring for the environment


Based in Yorkshire, we are one of the region’s oldest timber and forestry businesses. With sustainability and respect for the environment firmly at our roots, we aim to use timber from sustainable sources, whenever possible.

Our timber processing, driveway gate manufacturing centre and Head Office, near Wakefield, is one of the most successful examples of re-purposing in the area – as it sits on the site of the old Denby Grange colliery and mine.

However, this is just the tip of the iceberg and our commitment to sustainable timber fencing, garden and landscaping products is matched by our determination to operate to the highest environmental standards across the board.

Having installed a culture of caring for the environment the company is committed to finding new and innovative ways of preserving energy, and deriving heat and power from alternative, low carbon sources.
