Welcome to Historic Stone, our sustainable approach to quarrying red sandstone, buff sandstone, white sandstone and other heritage and conservation sandstones has proved that maintaining our built heritage whilst conserving our environment is achievable.
Historic Stone has red sandstone reserves ready to be quarried in locations across the UK, stones which will ensure that conserving our built heritage with the correct sandstone rather than the nearest matching sandstone is possible. A white sandstone deposit identified for quarrying will soon be available also ensuring that conservation of many historic treasures can be achieved.
Working closely with Heritage, Conservation architects, Conservation officers, ensures that we continually identify the sandstone requirements for regions throughout the UK. This is where it is important, as a red sandstone present in Staffordshire may not be a suitable red sandstone for a heritage conservation project in Cheshire, Lancashire or Worcestershire. Similarly a buff sandstone quarried in Yorkshire may not be the correct buff sandstone in conserving and restoring a building in Lancashire. Technical structure of a sandstone is as important as the appearance for example a Staffordshire Stone may not be of the correct granular make up for heritage building in another area although aesthetically the sandstone appears a good match.
Whilst our website is under construction we would welcome your call so we may discuss your stone requirements and inform you of our where sustainable, heritage sandstone can be sourced within your region.
