Last summer 2013 a gentleman telephoned us to enquire about a delivery of 240 tonnes of ménage silica sand to his home premises, he was in the process of building a riding ménage some 50 x 30 meters, he had already had over 200 tonnes of stone from his local suppliers, but called on us to deliver the amount of silica sand a mere 12 loads. From our base CW8 the mileage was in the region of 70/80 miles a round trip of 160 miles, we started the first load on the Tuesday due to the mileage and the loading of the sand at our local quarry we could only get two loads per day and loaded for next morning, also due to our driving hours. By the following Monday we had completed the whole 240 tonnes and that is with a single 8 x 4 tipping truck. The customer and his wife were very happy with the delivery and the price we gave so much so that a couple days later he had ordered another 20 tonnes to top of the ménage, it did look good I must admit very professional with stumps and rails all round, he had a depth of stone approx 8 inches and silica sand of 5/6 inches with membrane, and some sort of, looked like felt mixed in the top surface I guess that was for horses to run on. Since then we have done a few deliveries of ménage sand to different areas, one was at Ryhl and other was Knockin near to Oswestry, then we had quite a big challenge on at a place near Barnsley, the gentleman there was building a ménage from scratch already had the stumps and rails but no stone. We delivered with a single truck over 120 tonnes of recycled 70-30mm stone from a depot near to Doncaster, some of the stone came from Crewe as we are near there, for the base of the ménage including full drainage system and then the membrane, now came the silica sand and from our local quarry near to us, 140 tonnes of sand, two a day as we were traveling over Woodhead and on to Barnsley, dark in the morning, dark at night. The family were happy with what we had achieved and delivered and we got paid cash for our services. We deliver silica sand in 20 tonne loads, it`s a moist sand and helps to filter water out better than other sands, not to sharp and helps the horses from having bad tenions so they spring on the sand rather down plod.
