Ralph Young started in business in the 1950s manufacturing breeze blocks and in the early 1960s he began production at our Leighton Buzzard site – home to the original Youngs Industrial Estate. In the next few years our business grew to include plant hire, and supply of sand and gravel. Ralph bought 130 acres of gravel bearing land in Aldermaston where gravel was extracted until the late 1970s in our previous name of Young (Aldermaston) Developments Ltd.

By the early 1980s planning permission was granted for industrial units to be built on the site – this was the beginning of Youngs Industrial Estate, Aldermaston. By this time Ralph’s sons, Robert and Andrew, had become company Directors having worked through all aspects of the company’s operations. In 1995 Robert’s son, Roy, joined the company and in 2011 his daughter, Trina, and Andrew’s son, Tim – making it very much a family business.

In 2011, Young (Aldermaston) Developments Ltd become Young Estates and Land Ltd to include not only our estates but also our surrounding land. We take great pride in caring for the land previously used for gravel extraction at Aldermaston, and have created the beautiful Paices Wood Country Parkland, and launched our successful Seven Lakes Fishery.

With occupancy increasing through recent years, our business has continued to grow and in 2022 we built new units at our Aldermaston site to include well-known, national traders including Screwfix and Howdens.
