Your Local Coal Merchant
Hawkesworth Coal Limited is a family run business based in Pateley Bridge, North Yorkshire. We are proud members of the Approved Coal Merchants scheme, supplying and delivering quality Solid Fuels, Smokeless Fuels, Kiln Dried & Seasoned Logs and Bottled Gas.
Serving Nidderdale since 2013
Based in Pateley Bridge in the heart of Nidderdale, Hawkesworth Coal was established in 2013 by Darren Brown. Darren had learnt his trade whilst working for his Father in the family coal business in Northallerton, initially this was in the school holidays and on a Saturday but after starting his A-levels, Darren realised his passion was coal and subsequently joined the family business on a permanent basis!!
R.M. Hawkesworth & Co had been running the coal business, alongside their road haulage and milk tanker businesses, from the Station Garage Yard since the 1940's but due to ill health, Darren took on the fuel business from Roger and Shirley Hawkesworth in 2013 when they retired. This is when Hawkesworth Coal was born!
Darren is assisted by local lad Lee Marsland who was born and raised in Pateley along with our newest recruit Jonny Rayner who joined Hawkesworth's in October 2020. Darren's wife Louise helps with the running of the business, dealing with enquiries and the accounts. Holly the Border Terrier is also part of the team and can usually be found asleep by the roaring fire in the office!
We are proud to have been part of the Approved Coal Merchants scheme through the Coal Merchants Federation since the business was established. Being part of the ACM enables us to purchase the best fuels available on the market.
Our kiln dried and seasoned hardwood logs are responsibly sourced as well as being accredited as "Ready to Burn" through DEFRA's woodsure scheme. We are also members of the Federation for Small Businesses.
An extensive range of fuels
At Hawkesworth's we offer an extensive range of fuels to cater for all your domestic burning needs, although we do supply pubs, hotels as well as wholesale businesses and shops.
As we cover both town and country properties, our product range suits all kinds of appliances from open fires, multi fuel/wood burning stoves to solid fuel boilers and range cookers. We are also stockists of Flo Gas bottled LPG.
We offer a local delivery service throughout Nidderdale as well as Ripon, Harrogate, Masham and the surrounding areas. All solid fuels are delivered in either traditional 50kg sacks that are tipped out into a coal bunker or shed or alternatively 25kg pre-packed bags. Logs are delivered in nets, barrow bags and bulk bags as well as loose loads on request. We also have a range of bottled gas/LPG as well as accessories to get your fire stated!
We are also more than happy to offer help and advice on what fuels best for you, chimney sweeps etc.
