In the rare plum colour, this Welsh slate walling is both practical and beautiful. The slate pieces are hand-selected but are fairly flat and can be used for raised beds and step risers as well as planters and walls.

All the walling slate supplied is hand-selected to achieve the traditional random appearance, with the range of piece lengths typically 100-400mm in length, and a height of 25-75mm. Piece depths vary dependant on the actual size and typically range between 125-200mm in depth.

The plum welsh slate walling emanates from the Cambrian geological era and are 480 to 550 million years old. Welsh slate is renowned for its strength, durability and colour fastness, which means they are ideal for use in walling.

The walling slate is delivered on a pallet and each pallet contains 850kg of walling which will produce approximately 2.75m2 [ approx. 3.0m2 when allowing for mortar joint widths].

Additional key features are:

It has low water absorption and weathers well ensuring the slate is protected from frost damage.

Hard-wearing due to the durability of the natural slate.

The uniqueness of each natural slate walling piece means every project has its own unique signature because of the authentic natural beauty of the slate.

This natural slate walling has a lower carbon footprint than most other walling products sold as it is delivered directly from the quarry

PLEASE NOTE: bulk bags of Plum Slate random walling are 850kg (many other suppliers offer 700-800kg under the term bulk bag). You get 7.5 - 15% more walling when you buy with Stone & Surfaces Direct.

CCSQ

Based in Caernarfon, North Wales. CCSQ extract and process plum coloured welsh slate for use in landscaping.

Alexandra and Moel Tryfan Quarries

Roofing was produced in 3 steam-powered mills and was connected to the port of Caernarfon by the North Wales Narrow Gauge Railway, which opened in 1877, where slate could be exported by boat or transferred onto the London and North Western Railway for transport to other UK destinations. Roofing slate production ceased into the 1960s. The slate is of the Cambrian geological era – dated at between 480 and 550 million years old. It is fine-grained in texture and is mainly plum coloured with occasional green inclusions. Today’s workings are on a much-reduced scale from the peak of activity in the 1880s but a range of aggregates, rockery stone, walling and features such as monoliths are produced from the slate tips remaining as the relics of the original roofing slate workings. These products find many uses in home and garden projects from paths and driveways to retaining walls, raised beds and individual standing stones; an enhancement to any garden or landscaped area.

Location

Located in Gwynedd, North West Wales the quarries are located some 5 miles to the south-east of Caernarfon and a similar distance to the west of the tourist destinations of Llanberis and Snowdonia National Park. These 2 quarries that became conjoined during the latter part of the 19th Century were established in the era of peak roofing slate production circa 1860 and at their peak in the 1880’s employed some 200 people.
