Portland Stone is a classic British building stone that speaks of quality and tradition, while offering a consistency of colour and texture that sits well in modern design. Sawn six sides, its tight-grained surface gives a rich finish to any setting and a sensuous quality to carved pieces and edge profiles. Tiny fossils embedded in Portland Stone are a reminder of its prehistoric beginnings and add a fascinating dimension to its creamy colouring. Combine with pier caps, steps and pool surrounds and choose from our range of edge profiles to create a complete design solution that makes the most of its natural beauty.
Portland Stone has also long been revered by stone-workers for its workability, making it ideal for bespoke pieces. Our in-house team of experienced stone masons uses sophisticated, state-of-the-art equipment to bring out the best in this very special material. Choosing Portland Stone, from the Isle of Portland, Dorset, is to choose a special link with history. Quarried since Roman times, in the seventeenth century it was chosen by Christopher Wren for St Paul's Cathedral and has since become the quintessential London stone, giving classical dignity to our best-loved buildings
