Restoration and integrationFrom our flagship quarry close to Ancaster, near Grantham, we extract the reputable Ancaster Stone, a trusted building material since it's discovery by the Romans around 1800 years ago.
Ancaster was an important fortress town located on Ermine Street, the main Roman route between London and Carlisle. This undoubtedly helped to broaden the stone's appeal and explains why this much sought after honey/beige limestone is evident in countless country houses, churches and monuments in towns and cities throughout the UK.
When ancient stone succumbs to the ravages of time or is damaged in some way it is important, and in many cases a requirement, to repair or replace sympathetically with a stone as close, if not identical, to that which was originally used. Our Hooby Lane quarry yields stone ranging in colouration from white (very similar to Portland Stone) to the more usual shades of 'honey' which means that we can match almost all limestone colour variations.
When it comes to rennovation/restoration, our talented stone masons possess all of the traditional skills necessary to ensure the highest standard of work, in any type of stone and for all manner of restoration projects, anywhere in the UK.
