Most builders merchants and some DIY stores will deliver sand and gravel (mostly you will have to pay extra) - for example Point P and Chausson Matériaux - look in the Directory for details..

You can also take a trailer and pick up - this may be cheaper and more convenient (or not depending on your situation). If you want a lot of gravel (20m3+) then go to a quarry instead.

Hi dave I live near bonnat dept23 do you know of a local quarry near me that could deliver 20 tonnes of shingle or melange ? When I say I live near bonnat I mean my family do I am in uk at moment and do not speak enough French to call and enquire about prices ...I know the obvious answer is to look in yellow pages but maybe some one has had some dealings and could recommend a local supplier..many thanks Alan

Not sure you can get shingle (or melange - whatever that is) locally. You can get stone-chip type gravel in various grades and colours. Try Sotramat, La Roche, 23270 Châtelus-Malvaleix, France
05 55 80 80 22 - I've brought gravel from them in the past (although I picked it up).

Hi.
There is a builders merchants on the main bypass at le Grand Bourg, although I dont know if they deliver in the bags.
There is a builders merchants in Bonnat, near the nightclub, I went there a long time ago, so not sure if they still trade. Also, Toute Faire in Aigurande.

From Bonnat take the D15, direction Genouillac. At the T junction with the D940, go straight over. Sotramat is about 2/3 kms , on the left.

We ended up using Parrain Ets in Marsac
First class quick service and a very good price.
We have used them again since with the same positive results.

On the other hand......
Point P in Gueret really let us down by delivering the wrong stuff and a day late too.
