Pennine sawn Yorkshire stone or ‘Yorkstone’ is a popular choice due to the subtle, yet interesting colouring. When newly quarried, the stone has a base colour of light buff with varying degrees of subtle colour running through, shifting from the greyer tones to warm browns. Where some stone types might be interpreted by some as ‘bland’ and others could be seen as ‘garish’, Pennine is one of those rare stones that exhibits some natural interest without looking too fussy.
Pennine Yorkshire stone is a durable and versatile material, ideal for many applications such as steps, paving stone, coping stones etc. Bingley Stone’s masonry department can cut, shape and profile newly quarried Pennine Yorkstone block to your requirements.
Pennine natural stone will improve with age. All natural stones, particularly when installed outdoors will mature over time. They will take on a more mellow, muted appearance and to some degree equalise somewhat, with a natural patina formed. This is a result of the exposure to the elements, algae and lichens forming and foot traffic. This combination can polish the surface over time. Pennine stone should retain some character through this process and will in turn display its natural beauty.
