Yorkstone (or York stone) is a hard-wearing, durable type of sandstone. It’s typically quarried in Yorkshire and is known to have been used for building, steps and paving since medieval times.
Yorkstone is the most popular choice with our clients across London. It’s a traditional stone for London. Its light brownish-yellow background “buff” colour is very attractive and enhances properties from every era; including Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian and contemporary. Yorkstone can also be selected for its streaks of colour. It can display red, pink, blue and silver grey hues.
Pictured, right, are Yorkstone steps we created and installed for a Victorian / Edwardian home on Rudall Crescent, Hampstead, London, NW3. The homeowner chose York stone to return the property to its original look and style. Our work included: selecting and ordering the stone from the quarry, producing designs for approval by the client, stone cutting, hand carving and installation.
