    Huge stocks - Expert Advice - Fast Deliveries (and great Customer Service!)

    We're a family business established in 1989, with the expertise to deliver. Here’s what we mean:

    Huge stocks

    We have hundreds of different ropes and cords to choose from, ready to despatch from our warehouse. So there’s bound to be something to suit your needs. We cater for both domestic and commercial clients, in a wide range of materials - including cotton, hemp, jute, manila, sisal, nylon, polypropylene, polyester, polyethylene, hmpe/dyneema, steel wire and more. You can buy different lengths, colours and diameters; by the meter, on reels or coils.

    We also stock an extensive range of accessories such as high-quality rope and chain fittings, rope end finishes and tools - everything that you could possibly need to use your rope to its full potential.


    We've packed this website with help and advice to choose the right rope. Each product page has some tech specs and we're building up a detailed knowledge bank for all the different types of rope we sell. You'll see when you browse our main menu.

    If you don't know quite what you're looking for then use our RopeFinder. On the same page there is a handy guide to the properties of different types of rope. If you want to see how other people have used rope, or just pick up some great ideas and tips, have a look at our blog called "Be Inspired." 

    Our YouTube channel features a range of useful tutorials and information films - have a look and please subscribe.

    If you are still unsure which type of rope is right, please get in touch. We'll help you identify the rope you need.

    Fast deliveries

    We operate a very quick turnaround. Customers in mainland UK can normally enjoy next working day delivery on orders placed before Midday. For the Islands and Highlands of Scotland and during busy periods, it may take a little longer. And of course we ship worldwide. All the details are here.

  • Great Quality and Great Value

    Great Quality - we strive to provide the highest quality ropes and cords, at the best price on the market.

    We source our products from trusted ISO-certified UK and international manufacturers, and also make a range of cords at our premises here in Norfolk. 

    Great Value - as an exclusively online stockist of rope, we’re able to save on overheads. We pass those savings on to you which is why all of our ropes are available at a fantastic price.

    Take, for example, our marine grade ropes – these cost less than similar products found on a dedicated chandlery website. We also have regular clearance offers, with further discounted items and even greater savings. 

    If you are looking to buy rope or cord online but you're not quite sure what you need, try our handy online Rope Finder guide. There is plenty of technical informaton, advice, ideas and tips. After that, you could send an email to or give us a call on 01692 671721 and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
