Wealden Sussex Sandstone

Natural Fine Grade Sandstone Coursed Split Face (NFGS)

Fine Grade Natural Stone weathers from a warm honey colour to soft silvered autumn shades over time. It is an ideal natural stone to blend into a traditional or contemporary building and garden design.

This fine-grained, hard-wearing natural sandstone has been used for centuries in Europe to build public and private buildings. The stone masons at our Sussex quarry work with the characteristics of this lovely sandstone to produce a selection of precise-edged split stones.
