About Us

Linnell ArchiveBased in Silverstone, Northamptonshire, a stones throw from the famous F1 Motor Racing Circuit, Linnell Bros is one of the UK's longest established Timber Merchants.  We've been supplying quality timber products for over 130 years.

Founded in 1880 by Arthur Linnell, the company has remained true to its original goals to provide high quality products, friendly, efficient customer support and competitive prices.

Today, the company is run by the third and fourth generations of the Linnell family.  Under their direction, the business has grown and moved from it's original location in Silverstone Village Centre, to a new, purpose-built premises occupying an ten acre site just outside the village, on the A43 between Towcester and Brackley.

Over the years, Linnell Bros has diversified to offer a complete range of timber products, many of which are manufactured on-site in the company's comprehensively equipped workshop.  For example, our gates are all made to order on-site by experienced craftsmen using traditional construction methods and high quality, sustainably-sourced timber, pressure-treated with Tanalith E preservative in our own treatment plant.

We are committed to supplying sustainably managed timber, in accordance with FSC ®  and PEFC – the world's largest Forestry Certification Organisation.  We now buy 98% of our timbers from FSC ®  and/or PEFC Certified Suppliers and provide Chain of Custody where asked when our customers order timber (FSC-C022296).

In addition to our well established timber business, we have also recently established Linnell Countrywear – retailing leading brands of high quality Country Clothing as well as other accessories for the outdoor life.
