Branch Information

Welcome to Howarth Timber & Building Supplies Ashton-under-Lyne 

Howarth is a local builder’s merchants that have had a strong presence in Ashton for over 40 years, opening in 1974. Once a predominantly timber-based branch, they are now a fully-fledged mixed merchant, with heavy side materials and plumbing supplies being sold alongside our timber products. 

Step into summer with our garden and landscaping range at Ashton.
