It takes its name from the technique used to create it. Stone masons use a mallet and punch chisel to chisel the face flat, leaving small punch marks in the stone.
Traditionally, it was viewed as the highest-quality form of Yorkshire stone and it was typically used in the construction of high-status houses and public buildings.
Punch faced stone reclaimed from demolished Victorian and Edwardian buildings across Yorkshire has a beautiful weathered look and there is now strong demand for it as a walling material.
At Abacus Stone Sales, we have supplied reclaimed punch faced stone for a wide variety of projects, including barn conversions, garages and extensions to older properties.
This type of stone weathers in a number of different ways depending on the location of the building it was part of, but we offer a full colour and size matching service to help ensure you find the right materials for your project.
