ANCASTER HARD WHITE LIMESTONE PAVING
A cream coloured, durable fine grained medium density limestone with occasional shells.
Ancaster Limestone is quarried near the village of Ancaster in Lincolnshire. Many great works of architecture have been constructed from Ancaster stone, including Harlaxton Manor, Norwich Cathedral and St Johns College Cambridge.
Ancaster stone can be seen in the modern building application, in use as a facing and flooring stone, at ‘The Collection’ in Lincoln, pictured above.
