The thin flat beds of the stone have in the past been used for paving stone, paving slabs, roofing, flagstones, and even field boundaries (with the stone standing upright).
The paving's extreme durability, as well as its attractiveness, make it ideal for garden paving and landscaping stone. Furthermore the stone's fossils, fossilised seabed ripples and the light brown buff colour make it attractive in any setting.
The rockery, stone boulders and landscaping stone is extremely hard, frost resistant, and non-porous, and so is good in ponds and exposed settings.
The church yard shown in the picture above is an excellent example of the use of Forest Marble stone for paving, walling, building stone and roofing. This creates the quintessential English country scene.
