Lakeland Green slate chippings are direct from the quarry at Elterwater in the hills of Langdale Valley in the heart of the Lake District. This stone has a light green colour that brightens when wet and has the occasional natural red tones and white spa flecks. The shape is angular and relatively flat, which means it is perfect for garden slate chippings.

Lakeland Green slate chippings are known to be one of the world's hardest, most durable slates as it is a metamorphic volcanic stone from the Ordovician period that was formed 450-500 million years ago. The geology of the rock means it is
also ideal for domestic driveways, paths or parking spaces.

Additional key features:

The 40mm Lakeland Green slate chippings have a thicker depth than some other slates and are stronger, which means they will resist breaking under heavy use. This is ideal for driveway chippings or parking spaces and will require minimal maintenance and the occasional top-up.

The geological composition of Lake District slate chippings means they are unlikely to change the PH levels of ponds or soil and are therefore suitable for planting borders and alpine and rockery gardens. This slate is also a great choice for ponds and water features and is fish friendly (wash before use).

This slate has a lower carbon footprint than most other decorative aggregates sold as we deliver direct from the quarry.

PLEASE NOTE: bulk bags of 40mm Lakeland green slate chippings are 850kg from Stone & Surfaces Direct (many other suppliers offer 700-800kg under the term bulk bag). With Stone & Surfaces Direct, you get 7.5 - 15% more slate chippings.

From placing the order everything went smoothly the order arrived as per scedule the driver was excellent .

only improvement I would suggest making the delivery more efficient and easier for the driver would be having a hiab lift available.

Thank you for your feedback. Because the product comes direct from the quarry all our orders are transported through our third party provider pallet track, which enables us to deliver across the UK, without additional transportation to third party wholesalers, which we try to reflect in the price we offer to our customers. This means that the product is moved through distribution hubs to the local transport provider who delivers a broad range of products using a tail lift and pump truck.

Outstanding product from an outstanding company. Everything first class from order to delivery. Prices extremely competitive including delivery. Contact maintained all the way through the process. 40mm Green Slate looks absolutely fabulous when down. Delivered through the Pallet network with no issues. Slight access restriction to my property due to overhanging trees, but no problem to the delivery driver. Parked up his wagon and brought each large bulk bag on its pallet down the street and to the door on his electric pallet truck. What more can you ask. First class all round service. 5*

The stones were delivered quite quickly but I was surprised that such a large order was on a pallet the driver had a real hard time getting into the kerbside.

I'd like to thank the seller for fantastic service and a great product. There was no issue in ordering and arranging delivery except that I entered the wrong delivery postcode!! That was no problem to these guys who telephoned me and re arranged the delivery. The delivery driver told me a delivery time and he was as good as his word. I felt the customer service was really good and all communications from me were answered really quickly, one was out of hours and they still got back to me the same day. Based upon my experience I would wholeheartedly recommend this company to any prospective purchasers. Well done guys.

I bought 4 bags of Green chippings and was extremely pleased with colour and quality, but after laying the 4 bags found to be short from finishing the job so I ordered another 1, sadly on arriving and being laid, the chippings were of a different colour to the previous ones and stood out like sore thumb. After contacting Nick at Stone and Surfaces he immediately sent a replacement bag which matched the original 4. I cannot rate highly enough the help and service he did and it was refreshing to deal with a conscientious to please company and yes I would not hesitate to buy from them again in the future.

Fantastic company to deal with alway arrived on time

The attached information includes a quality certificate which will show the consistency of the aggregates size grading. Many aggregate suppliers do not provide this or carryout these controls which means the aggregate can have significant proportions of very small pieces to dust. In addition the material performance report provides the geological composition of the aggregate, and its physical and chemical properties. 

Burlington Aggregates

Based at Barrow In Furness, Cumbria, Burlington Aggregates are experts in the extraction and processing of natural slate, limestone and sand aggregates from five Lake District quarries.

Burlington Aggregates

Elterwater Quarry

Our Westmorland Green slate aggregate is green in colour and in its environmental credentials, as it is processed from the quarry overburden and offcuts derived from the production of the roofing slate used on iconic historical buildings such as Buckingham Palace and Tower Bridge, in London.

Elterwater Quarry


The quarry is situated at the foot of the Langdale valley, Nr Coniston, Cumbria, where slate has been extracted since the middle of the nineteenth century. Elterwater is pale green in colour and is a metamorphic volcanic stone from the Ordovician period, and thus formed 450-500 million years ago. The geology of the rock means it is one of the most durable and hard-wearing natural stones available and as a result ideal for use in a wide range of applications such as roofs, paving, walls, and as an aggregate for driveways and various areas around a house or building.

Kerbside Delivery

All orders for tiles, aggregates and paving are packed onto a pallet, and or normally in a wooden crate, wire frame case, or bag. By placing the order and accepting our delivery conditions, you are confirming that the delivery information you provide meets our third-party haulier conditions.
