The work has begun, the very first piece of stone getting cut for this year’s welcome to Yorkshire garden at The RHS Royal Chelsea flower show 21st May 2019. The count down has started, This show takes 1000s of man hours and weeks of hard work to achieve a finished show garden. Stay tuned in for […]

We recently supplied some beautiful grade A Yorkshire stone paving to DS Landscapes run by David Swaley, check out the images below of the way they have mixed and matched the stone perfectly.

People call it Yorkshire stone flags, Yorkstone flags or York Stone – either way it doesn’t matter, there are reclaimed and new stones, but they both look equally as beautiful when they are laid and provide the perfect character to any home or commercial project. Londoners love our Yorkshire stone so much, it’s used throughout Central London right up to Houses of Parliament so if you are looking for the best in reclaimed or new stone then choose Abacus Stone Sales and just speak to a member of our team today.

Wow, it’s been hot the last few days which is unheard of for February, this time last year it was -4 degrees and we were shovelling through snow in the quarries, but this year is a different story. We wanted to tell you all about the Yorkshire stone flags we have ready to go from our yard here in West Yorkshire ready for your build project up and down the country.

Ok, so if you are thinking of starting your build early you might be thinking about which type of stone to use, reclaimed stone is perfect if you want to build something that already has that Yorkshire charm and will also be cheaper too, we have tonnes of beautiful reclaimed Yorkshire stone in stock that we have lovingly restored back to its former glory and this stone used right can really add character and charm to any property. The other option is our newly cut sawn stone that we are finding being used across many new builds, you can view some videos of properties recently built with our new stone below.

As you can see this property in Halifax West Yorkshire is stunning and will stand the test of time using our jambs and quoin stones too for the window cills.

Alright, so you’re not thinking about constructing or extending your property but looking at landscaping, then you will want to get the best of the Yorkstone Flagstones we have to offer in our yard, again available in both reclaimed and new stone and can be cut by our expert stone masons to suit your needs. Yorkshire stone flags are used in London and all over the UK as the stone not only weathers beautifully but it’s actually well grained so perfect for non slip in wet English weather.

Whatever you needs are as we come into spring and the better weather starts to mean more building projects, here at Abacus Stone Sales we have a team of expert stone masons with a real passion for reclaimed Yorkshire stone and new stone from local quarries on hand to help you. Speak to a member of our team and make 2019 the year you get your build project done using the best in Yorkshire stone.

Our Grade reclaimed grade A Yorkstone flags are well known not just throughout Yorkshire but through the whole of the UK. Yorkstone is perfect for paving and is used widely throughout London too, in fact, a lot of London and City of London paving is done in Yorkshire stone as its so durable and looks fantastic.

In this project in Yorkshire our customer is using our Grade A Yorkshire Stone Flags for their patio area along with the gothic style planters.

Here at Abacus Stone Sales, we supply our flagstones throughout the UK and help homeowners and business owners realise their patio and outside flag potential with stone that only makes the grade. You won’t get anything less than the best Yorkshire has to offer with us and our pictures tell the story.

 

 

Further to our announcement of Abacus Stone Sales reclaimed and new stone being used in the overall winner at last years Royal Chelsea Flower Show we have been provided with a video to show you how our magnificent Yorkshire stone helped the judges sway to this wild Yorkshire garden.

Have a look at the video below, we love it and know you will too!

We are well known for our grade A flagstones throughout the UK, our Yorkshire stone flags are always of the highest quality and once laid properly will last a lifetime and more. Here at Abacus we believe Yorkshire stone is so unique and beautiful that it will always add value to your property and as a result will also keep your home strong and durable no matter what the weather brings.

Check out some of the Yorkshire stone flags from our Yorkshire quarry in Honley below, just look how stunning they look in the summer sun.

As you can see the Yorkshire stone is so distinct in nature compared to other types of stone like Bath Stone or the Scottish stone you see in and around Edinburgh. Light in colours and weathers darker in the rain, its also very grainy too so perfect for walking on to ensure non slip. If you are thinking of your next project and want to know more about the advantages of using either reclaimed stone or new stone then speak to a member of our team today or come visit our quarry over in Honley West Yorkshire.
