Hi everyone,

I'm trying to get hold of x20 140mm dense hollow concrete blocks (7N/mm²) but I'm struggling to find any in my local area. I'm on the Hampshire/Berkshire/Surrey border. There are some showing on buildingmaterials.co.uk website but when I ordered them they came back and send they were having supply/delivery issues. That was strange as just before I ordered them I phoned their sales team and they provided me a quote which was a lot more expensive than their online price (delivery cost doubled). Anyway, does anyone know where I might be able to find some?

Many thanks,

Ed

Do you not have any builders merchants down your way?

Yes, all the usual suspects. They all have 215mm but the 140mm seems to be very elusive.

All you can do is ring around and look online. I just looked on EBay and the only ones are collect from Staffordshire, so my guess is that noseall has bought up the entire UK stock this morning to do you up like a kipper.

Haha, yes I saw those too! Would be handy if I lived anywhere near. Not having a van is a bit of a pain.

I got in contact with Tarmac and they said my nearest stockist is in Watford and then all further North. Doh!
