Yorkshire Stone Company’s 140mm reclaimed sandstone walling is an ideal choice for anyone building in the conservation areas of the Peak District, such as those in Castleton, Hathersage, Glossop and Chapel-en-le-Frith.
Using the right building materials is often a key consideration in decisions about whether to approve planning applications in conservation areas, as councillors and local residents are usually keen to ensure that any new build, extension or conversion fits with the look of the town or village.
Typically, it requires traditional local materials and in the case of the Derbyshire part of the Peak District that generally means using sandstone walling and stone roof slates. Think of the beautiful old houses and shops that line the streets of Castleton or New Mills and you will have an idea of the sorts of building materials that are preferred.That can make life difficult for housebuilders and property developers, but the Yorkshire Stone Company can help.
Our 140mm reclaimed sandstone walling is not only the right type of material for Peak District conservation areas (locally-sourced natural stone), it will also ensure your new build fits with the character of the older properties nearby or that your extension closely matches the original part of the house.
We produce it from blocks of high-quality reclaimed sandstone, which our craftsmen cut to the standard 140mm walling size. The result is a product that has the beautiful look of weathered stone, but none of the problems usually associated with building with reclaimed materials.As the stone is cut to a uniform height, wall ties will line up, quoins will fit and the build can be completed as quickly as if new materials were specified.
The production method also means we can supply the 140mm reclaimed walling stone in large enough quantities for almost any project. If required, we can also supply stone quoins, heads, cills, jambs and lintels cut to size for your build, making a simple to use and competitively priced building kit.From our yard in Holmfirth, we can supply sandstone ideal for use in conservation areas in Glossop, Castleton, New Mills, Hathersage, Whaley Bridge and Chapel-en-le-Frith, or just to build or extend a home in the Derbyshire countryside.
