Does anyone know of someone who can replace my timber quay heading for a sensible price
on a labour only basis -  CASH - I will provide materials. OR does anyone have experience od doing it themselves? I've been told it's not difficult with a mini-didder and driver.

By sensible, may I presume you mean cheap?  Generally speaking, with quayheading you get what you pay for.  Agreed, it isn't brain surgery - which I certainly wouldn't attempt on a DIY basis - but on the other hand I have seen some DIY examples recently which are truly horrendous and will almost certainly not stand the test of time.  The piling process can go wrong very quickly.

My advice would be to use quality timber, the thicker the better, but not too wide.  Ensure that it is pressure treated and that all cuts on site are brush treated.  Unfortunately the old Tanalising process has now been, literally, so watered down for environmental reasons as to be almost useless.  

I am about to have replaced the 46 yards of quayheading chez nous.  Our river frontage was last re-piled nearly thirty years ago.
