Wealden Sussex Sandstone

Wealden Sussex Sandstone Coursed Hand Split Walling (CHS)

This hand split natural sandstone walling is ideal for landscaping projects or for buildings requiring a natural appearance. The stone masons at our Sussex quarry work with the characteristics of this lovely British sandstone to produce a selection of split stone with sharper edges than our Random Hand Split Walling.

Wealden Sussex Sandstone 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.
