Visit the Yard
Over 5,000 Items in stock
The best way to get a feel for how much is on offer at Burgess Reclamation, is to visit our Oxfordshire yard and see for yourself.
Our yard is the former Volvo truck garage that in the past has also been used as a petrol station and coach depot. We managed to buy the site in the summer of 2009 and have had a full flooring showroom laid so you can walk on the tiles and get a real feel for them. Also inside we have a fireplace and stove display area as well as a door and door fittings display area. Other items inside are all of our oak and elm beams and wooden flooring.
We have over an acre of outside stock for you to wander through. Since we have moved to the yard we have also added a kitchen area which has our pine and oak floorboards laid so you can walk on them and see what they look like in a big area.
We have ample parking and have a customer toilet. Dogs are also welcome to walk around and if they want a bowl of water just ask, but we must warn you it is a busy main road so it maybe an idea to keep them on the lead.
Our story … We’ve worked in this industry for a long time and like to think we know it rather well. Originally established as a Demolition business by Adam’s Grandfather, George Burgess after he left the Navy in 1946, Burgess & Sons as it was first known has always been a family affair. George was joined by his two sons Mike and Bob when they left school. Specialising in Demolition, they soon realised the value of reclaimed materials.
Following in the family footsteps, Adam joined the firm after leaving the Royal Green Jackets in 2002. Sadly at this time both George and Mike had passed away and Adam took the opportunity to ‘take the helm’ and with his father Bob they decided to revamp the business concentrating on the reclaim aspect and Burgess Reclamation was created.
In 2009 the yard was moved from its original location in London Road, Bicester to the Old Volvo Garage in Souldern, Oxon increasing the yard in size and allowing Adam to increase the potential of the business, whilst keeping the traditions of a family firm. Adam’s dad Bob remains a constant support dividing his time working alongside Adam and taking long cruises abroad now he has semi-retired. However as the yard has increased in size and it’s popularity as a reclaim yard has grown, Bob says he has never worked so hard!
Whilst much of the reclaimed items are found locally and nationwide, Adam also created enough contacts during his travels far and wide with the Army to enable him to source the interesting, eclectic, unique furniture and reclaimed items we are able to offer you today.
