Stones available

Natural stone supplier for Wrexham, Chester, Cheshire, Flintshire, Denbighshire and the Wirral

When you are planning a stone masonry project, you are most likely to be considering the use of sedimentary stones like limestone, sandstone or slate. You’ll see stones like sandstone and limestone in many well-known buildings and landmarks in the North West and North Wales regions. For example, Chester Cathedral and Chester’s walls are known for their distinctive look thanks to the Cheshire red sandstone that was used. It’s a type of sandstone that’s popular across all of Cheshire and the Wirral, making an appearance in many buildings in places like Beeston and Peckforton across to areas such as Burton, Neston and Caldy.

St. Giles’ Church in Wrexham, Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Trevalyn Hall in Rossett are all listed buildings that feature cefn buff sandstone (they are also all buildings and structures that JB Stone Masonry has worked on!). Limestone is used prominently too in heritage buildings: for example, St. Beuno’s in Denbighshire and Pantasaph Friary near Holywell are both made from Welsh limestone.
