I ordered the 10mm blue slate chippings to replace a small lawn my two dogs had ruined. Feels lovely and springy under foot and looks great.

Excellent customer service prior to purchase: got samples and advice regarding quantity for the odd shape. Great service from this company throughout. Highly recommend.

Very happy with the product and will order again in the near future. Fantastic delivery times and the driver was very helpful.The website says that it’s kerb delivery, but if like myself you help the driver, he will try and get as close as possible to make it easier for yourself.

Perfect for what we needed them for. We are creating a seating area at the back of the garden so decided to lay these chips down for the seating and various pots to sit on. Really pleased, they look great.

Timely delivery and very nice product. Thank you.

These practical and beautiful Blue Slate Chippings are from Kirkby in Furness quarry in Cumbria's southern Lake District. The stone has a mid to dark blue appearance when wet and a pale blue/grey appearance when dry with some occasional natural brown flecks of colour.

The slate emanates from the Silurian period and is over 450 million years old. This British slate is renowned for its strength, durability and colour fastness.

Additional key features of 10mm South Lakeland Blue Slate Chippings are:

  • The smaller size of these slate chippings means it is excellent for planting beds and pots as they will dress neatly around smaller planting and shrubs and create a decorative surface to set off the contrast of plant foliage.
  • Slate chippings offer lower maintenance, which saves you time compared to other garden landscaping products as they are ideal for weed prevention and the slate helps to maintain the moisture in your soil during long hot summer spells.
  • 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 10mm South Lakeland Blue 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. 

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

Kirkby Quarry

The South Lakes blue grey slate is a secondary aggregate processed from the extracted rock that cannot be used to make Kirkby blue roof slate that is found on the traditional slate roofs seen across the north of England and Scotland.

Kirkby Quarry


The quarry is situated on Kirkby Moor, overlooking the Dudon Estuary, near Kirkby in Furness, and it has operated as a quarry for roofing slate for over 400 years. The Kirkby blue/ grey roofing slate was often known in the 19th Century as the “Lancashire Slate”, as it was within the old county boundaries of Lancashire and was prominent in the forming of the railway network during the industrial revolution. With the demise of the indigenous quarries of Scotland, Kirkby slate became the go-to material for the traditional random slate roofs of cities such as Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as the northern “powerhouses” of Manchester and Leeds.  The Kirkby slate is sedimentary in nature and was formed during the Silurian period some 300-350 million years ago. It is a dense and durable material that is ideal for use as a decorative aggregate in drives, pathways and gardens.
