Description

We are the leading supplier of Bath Stone from our sister company the Bath Stone Group at the Stoke Hill Mine, near Bath. This beautiful, hardwearing limestone has been quarried there since the mid-15th Century and is the premier Bath Stone for restoration and new build projects alike.

Our Stoke Ground Bath Stone can be supplied as sawn, split and tumbled.

 

Two types of our beautiful Stoke Ground Bath Stone are available: the Stoke Ground Top Bed and Stoke Ground Base Bed.

Stoke Ground Top Bed 
This is a consistent, finely grained limestone which is pale cream or buff in colour, mellowing to the light honey colour infamous of Bath Stone. With Stoke Ground Top Bed block reaching up to 1600mm in height, there are a wealth of design opportunities for developers, masons and sculptors. Stoke Ground Top Bed is also the ideal Bath Stone for ashlar walling, carving and fireplaces.

Stoke Ground Base Bed 
This is a hardwearing grained limestone which is light buff/grey in colour with small intermittent shell deposits. Due to its excellent durability and quality, Stoke Ground Base Bed is perfect for weathering and exposed areas such as string courses, cornices and coping stones.
