Clapham York Stone
Yorkstone is one of the finest sandstones in the world and the perfect choice when you need fine-looking buff coloured steps and paving. The stone we use is hand selected from Yorkshire and despite being over 300 million years old ) it is remarkably fine and even grained.
For doorsteps and our paving we choose Yorkstone that is largely free from colour banding and avoid distinct bedding. Ours is top class, even grained (in all directions) and with very little colour variation— although we do allow a little to help retain a natural appearance. In fact, many synthetic-stone makers try to make their product look like Yorkstone. We like to use is as an entrance stone to a Victorian mosaic tile path, or as a bull nose step at the top of a path usually as an entrance to a porch area.
York Stone is a very good choice for steps because it consists of small grains of quartz that are harder than glass. These grains are tightly packed together and are extremely hard wearing and have an excellent natural grip. York Stone does not go slippery when wet so makes a very safe choice of step. Because we choose only the best quality Yorkstone.
