Coal Merchants Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough’s Local Quality Coal Merchant

While we operate as Barnes and Woodhouse for timber products, our coal deliveries fall under the name P Woodhouse, under which we have been selling coal for over sixty years. The Woodhouse name has long been associated with Middlesbrough, and we’re proud to use it as our base of operations.

What size coal bags do you deliver?

Our fuel is delivered in 25kg or 50kg plastic bags, as many people now do not have the storage facilities necessary. However, we do also supply plastic coal bunkers, bespoke timber bunkers and log stores.

Are P Woodhouse members of any trade bodies?

We are members of both the Coal Merchants Federation (CMF) and the Approved Coal Merchants Scheme (ACMS). ACMS membership requires the company to follow a consumer charter that guarantees standards and services when selling solid fuels such as coal. This prevents you from being sold inferior products and suffering from poor customer service.

How long has P Woodhouse been delivering coal to Middlesbrough?

Our coal merchants business was started in 1948 by John Woodhouse and his son Peter, who inherited the business just 14 years later. At the time, coal was a thriving business and all of the family joined in – today, there are many members of the Woodhouse family at work, delivering coal to homes around Middlesbrough.
