A practical and beautiful stone from the southern Lake District hills. The stone has a mid to dark blue appearance when wet and a pale blue/grey appearance when dry with some natural brown shades. The shape is angular and relatively flat so will bed down well and resist rolling when walked on for pathway surfaces or used as a driveway aggregate. The 40MM slate chippings have thicker depth than some other slates and are stronger which means they will resist breaking under heavy use. This is ideal for use as driveway chippings or parking spaces and will require only minimal maintenance and the occasional top up.

PLEASE NOTE OUR BULK BAGS ARE 850kg [ many other suppliers offer 700-800kg under the term bulk bag].

The attached information includes a quality certificate which will show the consistency of the aggregates size grading.

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.
