The South Lakeland Blue paddlestones are from the Kirkby in Furness quarry in the southern Lake District fells in Cumbria. 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 450million years old.

This British slate is renowned for its strength, durability and colour fastness.

The shape is angular and relatively flat and larger in size than 40mm slate chippings, ranging typically between 50 and 125mm in size, making blue slate paddlestones ideal for using to cover pond liners or as a grading element in rockeries and planting beds.

Lake District slate's geological composition means they are unlikely to change the PH levels of ponds or soil and are therefore suitable for planting borders and a great choice for ponds and water features as it is fish friendly (wash before use).

This is my second order of paddlestone. Great product and service. I'm now using it in the back garden for building a Japanese garden and highlighting some plants and walkways. I realise now that hard landscaping is a forgotten aspect of the garden as it can transform the look of a garden and modernise it.

The slate is of a very high quality and looks fantastic now it’s been washed down. The communication was brilliant when we had issues with the crappy 3rd party logistics provider that was used to deliver the product. I would totally recommend this company and would not hesitate to use them again myself.

Cheapest I could find and did what was required, although I could have done with more of the larger paddlestones.

Really excellent service and came in a wire container on a pallet. The stones are great and they will complement the larger slate stones I have also ordered. Will be used in a rockery and pond surround.  

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.
