Portland Stone Paving

Portland Stone Information

Portland Stone is a classic British stone that speaks of quality and tradition, while offering a consistency of colour and texture that has long been sought after. A limestone with a tight-grained surface, it gives a rich finish and a sensuous quality to carved pieces, coping, pier caps and edge profiles.

What is Portland Stone?

Portland Stone paving is limestone. Laid down over millennia, different layers of Portland stone have different characters and slightly different shades of cream. Some layers are very fine. Others are busily embedded with tiny fossils, a reminder of its prehistoric beginnings that adds a fascinating dimension to its creamy colouring. The Portland stone we supply is chosen for its tight grain and medium shell content.

Where does Portland Stone come from?

Portland Stone paving only comes from the Isle of Portland, Dorset, England. It’s been 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.
