Any building that utilises natural stone in its construction is an attractive and enduring symbol of quality and tradition, hence its use in some of the country’s most imposing and elaborate architecture. Our walling stone is prepared and supplied in large quantities to numerous builder’s merchants, commercial housing developments and corporate build projects nationwide.

Our walling stone is supplied in the following preparations:
Tumbled sawn building stone is stone taken from large quarry blocks that have been sawn into slabs, guillotined and then ‘tumbled’. This type of stone is neatly stacked on pallets and crane off-loaded. The product comes in five standard course heights 65mm, 90mm, 115mm, 140mm and 215mm all working to standard gauge.
Naturally bedded limestone is the more traditional method of cutting building stone. This method uses thinner layers of stone from the quarry, giving a more traditional finish with a slightly wavy bed joint. The stone is supplied random course in one tonne builders bags.
We generally market and supply three types of natural walling stone: Ancaster, Hooby Lane (which is available in ‘honey’ or white, very similar to Portland Stone) and Ironstone. We also supply a ‘stone mix’ as illustrated below.
