We have recently supplied Yorkshire stone cobbles for Sugdens Developments of Huddersfield. Yorkshire stone cobbles are perfect for driveways, as they are hardwearing enough to cope with heavy foot traffic and vehicles, and will last for decades.

We source our reclaimed Yorkstone cobbles from streets around the north of England and supply them for a wide variety of projects nationwide, including driveways, paths and garden edging for luxury housing developments. We have large stocks of reclaimed Yorkstone cobbles at our yard in Holmfirth and can help you to find an exact match for your project.

There are many materials you could select for your new drive, including tarmac, gravel, block paving or natural stone flags, but before you make a final decision, it is worth considering the qualities of reclaimed granite or stone setts.

SETTS ARE HIGHLY DURABLE

Driveways made from reclaimed setts will last a lifetime.

Whether you choose sandstone or granite setts, the drive will be highly durable and, if laid properly, it will last more than a lifetime. Take a look at the many old streets and pedestrian areas in town centres that have setts or cobblestones to give yourself an idea of how long they will last.

A driveway constructed of setts should be as good as impermeable, which will help to keep it in great condition. However, that means it must have adequate drainage when it is laid – a good specialist paving contractor will do this as standard.

A CHOICE OF DESIGNS

A European fan pattern created from reclaimed setts.

Reclaimed setts can be laid in a number of different patterns, all of which will result in an attractive driveway that will enhance the look of your home.

Many people choose a simple coursed pattern (which sees the setts laid in regular straight lines) or a random layout, but there are alternatives.

Select a specialist contractor for the installation and you could opt for the bogen design (a segmental arc pattern), a distinctive European fan or even a stunning guilloche.

LOW MAINTENANCE

A well laid drive using reclaimed stone or granite setts should not require any maintenance, other than sweeping leaves off and a very occasional clean if dirt has accumulated on it.
