WHAT WE DO

When you’re as passionate about your art as we are, having control of each stage, from raw material to beautifully finished and installed masonry, is all part of the creative process.

That’s why we have a team of masons and a fully equipped workshop where we manufacture stone products. And more specialist skilled people who do their stuff on site. Join us on our stonework journey, whether that’s from A right through to Z, or just one of the processes along the way.

Whatever the natural stone product you are looking for, we work with quarries from across the UK to source the best block for the job. And of course, we always assess the material for quality and suitability, before approving it for the project.

ON SITE

STONE MASONRY FIXING

Our fixer masons work on site installing the stonework produced by the banker masons and stone carvers, whether that’s for making good or restoring a building or fixing masonry on a new, high spec structure. These guys are experts in traditional stone techniques.

STONE WALLING

A dedicated team is purely focused on walling, and all that goes with it. For dry stone walling, random rubble, or course and ashlar methods, we reckon they’re the best in the land.

LIME POINTING

Most of our pointing projects involve work on listed or historic buildings using lime mortars, so we know what we’re about with traditional materials and mixes.

STONE RESTORATION & REPAIR

When it comes to restoration and repair, we do it all, from stone cleaning and stone replacement or consolidation to sympathetic use of specialist mortars.

SPECIALIST STONE CLEANING

You need to know your stuff when it comes to cleaning stone. The various techniques are not necessarily interchangeable, so the method should be chosen with care to fit the material. Our experts will explain the whys and wherefores, and carry out the work meticulously too.

STONE PAVING

Whether it’s new fixing schemes or repairs and restoration to historic buildings, parks and gardens, our paving team have it covered.

BRICKWORK & CIVILS

We employ in-house bricklayers and ground workers to work alongside our masons. That means when both stone masonry and brickwork or civils are involved, we have full control of the project to give the highest quality finish.

MASONRY SURVEYING & CONSULTANCY

More and more, we find that clients who look after historic buildings and structures rely on our stone surveys and expert advice to help plan maintenance strategies. We’re happy to be your stonework consultancy partner.

WORKSHOP

STONE CARVING

Our stone carvers take clients through from design concept to completion. Whatever the carving — relief on a fireplace, detailed moulding, classical architecture or monolithic statue — we’re proud to have such exceptional talent on the team.

ARCHITECTURAL MASONRY

We make and supply made to order architectural masonry in natural stones sourced from across the UK. Examples include stone heads, cills, jambs, mullions, bay windows, quoins, copings and architectural mouldings.

WALLING

Most of walling we produce in house is ashlar, but we’re happy to match any existing or new spec you may have. And we’ll source from a range of stone. We will also supply stone for both dry stone projects and backed off random.

PAVING / STEPS / EDGINGS

With Whitworth, Scout Moor and Fletcher Bank all within shouting distance of our workshop, we’re perfectly placed for top quality, locally quarried stone for flags and setts.

FIREPLACES & HEARTHS

A hand carved stone fire surround will become the focal point of a room. For this level of detail you need the highest degree of skill; fortunately we have it in spadefuls. Our surrounds are bespoke and produced to client spec, to match a previous fitting, or to our own designs.

SAWN SIX SIDES & STONE SLAB

We are happy to supply our own sawn stone slab and sawn six sides stone to trade clients and direct to customers for their own use if required.

MEMORIAL LETTERING

House name plaques, headstone inscriptions or a corporate logo on a monolith. You name it. We do it. Just ask.

COPINGS

No limits. We’ll make and fix everything from two-tonne pilaster caps for a bridge to simple once weathered copings for a garden wall.
