Wealden Sussex Sandstone Hand Split Walling (HS2)

This hand split Wealden Sussex Sandstone walling is ideal for country-garden-style landscaping projects or for buildings requiring a rustic appearance. An option for dry stone walling, it is also suitable for creating natural water features.

The stone masons at our Sussex quarry work with the natural characteristics of this lovely British sandstone to produce a random selection of split stone with soft edges.
