When it comes to creating the authentic Yorkshire landscape you’ll find that aged and weathered is so important to the overall aesthetics. Here at Abacus Stone Sales we have taken onboard that surge in popularity of reclaimed flagstones and as they have become harder to source over the years have begun creating the weathered and aged look so that when we supply our new flagstones they arrive with the character you expect.

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.

Well Yorkshire reigns supreme at the Royal Chelsea Flower Show in London. On a beautiful warm spring day The Yorkshire Garden looked stunning and was so well designed that you could be forgiven for thinking you were in stunning Yorkshire Dales.

In helping the Yorkshire Garden win the top spot, we were asked to supply some of our natural Yorkstone Flags and reclaimed natural weathered stone from our local quarry in Honley West Yorkshire.

For the event we supplied different types of natural and reclaimed stone from the event.

You might remember from our earlier post where a customer of ours Scott Wilson sourced the finest Yorkshire stone and Yorkstone Flags for paving their Californian home to bring a touch of Yorkshire to the West Coast of the USA.

Well Scott has been kind enough to send over the completed pictures of his Californian paving and we think the Mexican masons have done a fantastic job.

Hello Allan,

Following up on my earlier email I thought you would appreciate seeing how we used the remainder of the Yorkstone pavers at our home project.

Happy as we were with the front walkway and the smaller pavers, we had no idea of the impact of using the larger pavers for the patio on the north side of the house. The courses ranged from 18″- 26″ and at the recommendation of a more experienced mason, we decreased the joint size slightly due to the near-perfect squareness of the pavers.  The net result was a more monolithic sweep of stone that seems like it has been in place for years.  We so loved the look and feel of the large pavers that we used the leftovers to extend the stone stairs at the north with in-ground courses that transition to a gravel terrace beyond.

We finished the work just in time for our son’s wedding and the guests at the reception were all praising the wonderful feel and look of the Yorkstone.  I am grateful to have found your company and its fine products and wish you continued success.

With best regards,

Scott Wilson AIACalifornian Homeowner
