Ladycross Stone is a sedimentary sandstone, soft enough to be worked when first quarried but then starts to harden making it very durable. This durability is what makes organisations like English Heritage recommend Ladycross Stone for listed buildings in many parts of Britain. Ladycross Stone has been quarried by hand at Ladycross Quarry for at least 300 years (no explosives are used) and is one of the few remaining quarries where stone is won by hammer and wedge. Whilst historically Ladycross Stone has been used mostly for roofing 50% now goes for ‘new build’ such as house building stone, crazy paving and fire places. We also specialise in natural quarried finger stones which can be anything from one to four metres in length.
