Branch Information

Welcome to Howarth Timber & Building Supplies Chester 

Howarth Timber & Building Supplies are a local builder's merchants that took over Springfield Timber & Building Supplies at the end of August 2018 and began trading at Howarth Chester in February 2019.  

More than just a timber yard, we are gradually integrating the full Howarth product range which currently includes: 

  • Richard Burbidge Mouldings and Stairparts 
  • Spax Screws 
  • Dart Accessories 
  • OSB3 Boards 
  • FSC-rated External Plywoods 
  • IG Lintels 
  • Ecotherm PIR Rigid Insulation 
  • Polypipe Underground and Above Ground Drainage 

Howarth Chester is predominantly hard landscaping; however, we offer excellent stocks of: 

  • Plywood 
  • C24 Carcassing Timbers 
  • Plasterboard 
  • Lintels 
  • Blocks and Bricks 
  • Insulation 
  • Hand Tools and Fixings 

On Display 

We currently have an excellent landscaping display, featuring natural and concrete paving, as well as gravel. 

We also have a display of Keylite Roof Windows and Loft Ladders. 

Plans are underway for a major redevelopment of the site with a new extended shop and warehouse for a greater variety of timber and timber-related products. 


Located on the A5104, Howarth Chester is our first Welsh branch. It is close to Broughton Shopping Park and junction 36A of the A55 North Wales Expressway that connects Chester with Holyhead. 

Early Opening 

We are open from 7 am every weekday morning, and from 8 am until noon on a Saturday.
