Natural stone

All the stone that I use is natural stone which is limestone that is quarried. There are numerous different types of Limestone available in the uk. Some are more suitable than others for certain types of construction. Blue Lias is good for stone flooring and for building walls on houses. Bath Stone is a more comprehensive  limestone and can be used for artistic carving as well as  stonemasonry carved for architectural purpose. Its fineness can be seen as the Georgian architecture in the City of Bath. Portland stone is a harder limestone  and its versatility can be seen in the architecture and statues of St Paul’s Cathedral. 

I would be happy to advice you about the use of natural stone.

The following pictures show Bath stone being used as carved window surrounds. There is also Hamstone (honey colour) and blue lias being used for walling.
