Derbyshire Or Yorkshire Solid Oak Doors?

7th Jul 2015

On the face of it, our Derbyshire and Yorkshire solid oak doors could appear to be quite similar. So what are the key differences between these solid oak doors?

Our Derbyshire Solid Oak Doors are our best value doors for those on a tighter budget. These doors are 20mm in thickness and consist of three horizontal ledges on the back of the door. Likewise our Yorkshire Solid Oak Doors offer a premium quality door, that are also 20mm thick and consist of three ledges.


Like all of our solid oak doors, both of these doors are made up from our high quality character grade European oak. The unfinished nature of these doors allows you to stain, oil or wax however you like. Both are available in either kit form or ready assembled, and in the standard widths of 2'3", 2'6" or 2'9".

One difference between the Derbyshire and the Yorkshire, is the beading of the oak doors; which can be seen along the length of the boards. With the Derbyshire door, the beading is much more prominent as it incorporates a traditional deep cock bead. On the other hand, the beading of the Yorkshire is slightly more subtle.


The other notable difference between these doors is the way in which they are assembled. With the Yorkshire solid oak doors, the ledges are fitted using the more traditional screwing and plugging method. As for the Derbyshire solid oak ledged door, the fixings are instead covered with what is known as an architectural screw covered strip. With this, the Derbyshire offers something completely different visually from your solid oak door.

If you would like to discuss either of these doors with us further, or indeed any of our solid oak doors, please give us a call on 01538 304584.
