Building stone - each stone is dressed, making it fast and easy to build with

Our building stone, produced from our Quarry on the Dorset, Somerset border, has been used primarily for building houses, walls, barns, churches, and cottages in the towns, countryside, and villages throughout the West Country for centuries.  These stone buildings, and structures are some of the prettiest buildings in the country, adding value, and beauty for the owners. 

 

The random rubble building stone is very hard, and durable, making it frost and water resistant, and so ideal for exposed locations or where there is water.  Today, the stone masons in the Quarry, cut and hand dress the building stone, so that it is easy to lay, and build with.  It is cut to 6 inches on bed (15 cms width) with random heights.

 

This natural building stone is full of interest, having a rich grey/buff colour with fossilised shells that can be seen in every piece of stone.  

 

Where a more rustic cottage look, building stone with thinner bed heights can be provided.  Furthermore, although the building stone is cut to 6 inches on bed (the width) , the stone can be produced with wider bed widths of 7 inch or more.

 

What ever the style of the build, modern or the vernacular, the country house or town house or cottage, or barn conversion, this natural building stone will add colour, texture, and value to any new build.
