The UK’s largest independent drainage company


Lanes for Drains is the main operating arm of Lanes Group.

Through it, we provide round the clock emergency response and a complete range of drainage solutions to the domestic, industrial and commercial markets. 

The brand began as a small Yorkshire firm which was bought by the Earnshaw family in the early 1990s. Over the next twenty years, new depots were established or businesses acquired, until the Lanes’ standard and services were available right across the UK.

Each regional depot in the network is equipped with the technology and resources to offer expertise locally. Many of our clients work only with their regional Lanes’ depot, whilst others have national support through a central accounts team.

Fortifying this infrastructure is our commitment to investment in IT, staff and technological resources, safety systems and outstanding customer service. Clients know that we never settle for second best.
