All the slate is handcut with no machined or sawn faces. It is local stone from our Victorian Slate Quarry.
We also have local Devon granite, limestone and quartz available for landscaping in smaller quantities.
Our laid slate
Our slate has been used on buildings where key phrases from local planning documents from councils basically specify our stone
The stonework shall be constructed of natural stone which matches the colour and texture of that occurring locally. The new stonework shall be laid on its natural bed and pointed in a lime mortar recessed from the outer face of the stone. Machine cut or sawn faces shall not be used in the wall or for quoin stones.
Reason: To ensure that the development displays good design practice in respect of the age and character of the development and to allow the Local Planning Authority to assess the details of the scheme to ensure that their character is maintained.
Slate Monoliths : Standing Stones : Pinnacles : Boulders
Perfect as the focal point inside a planter or on a gravel or rockery area. The stones have a substantial weight and heights range from 0.5m to 2.5m. Weight is between 50 kg up to 2 tonnes.
You can drill the monolith and either have a funky looking shot hole or insert a light or use the hole for a fountain water feature.
Devon Victorian Slate looks fantastic when used with water.
Our colour hue contains a mix of blue, grey and browns. Several pieces contain beautiful veins of quartz, formed by minerals boiling through the bed of slate and then crystals growing as the rock cools. We strongly encourage people to visit us to pick the stone themselves. However we are happy to video skype and photo stones.
