UK: Natural Stone: Manufacturers & Suppliers
ABOUT NATURAL STONE
The types of natural stone most commonly used in construction are Sandstone and Limestone. Sandstones range in colour from white, buff and grey through to brown and shades of red, depending on the source. Sandstones are quarried in Scotland, the North of England, Yorkshire, and Derbyshire. Limestones are formed from accumulations of fossilised shells deposited by sea organisms. Colours range from off-white, buff, cream, grey and blue. They are found in England in a belt from Dorset, the Cotswolds, Oxfordshire and Lincolnshire to Yorkshire. Leading UK suppliers of natural stone are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.
