Why should you buy this product?

  • BEST in Market quality Because the slate we process is pre selected, this ensures that the specification is consistent, and typically +/- 10mm of your chosen size, whereas most of our competitors send large proportions of small pieces and dust.
  • Colour The south lakes blue slate is homogenous in colour so that you get what you expect, most of the slate supplied from others has other colour inclusions such as plum.
  • Quality Promise Our partners ensure the products have certification for compliance to Ce standards and declarations of performance for use.
  • Ethically Sourced All of our natural stone, decorative aggregates and paving products are sourced from environmentally friendly complementary partners.

I have a place just a mile away from me where I could have purchased my blue slate but they were much more expensive than Stone and Surfaces Direct.

I was kept unto date with the delivery and on arrival both drivers of each delivery were fantastic. They could not have been more helpful with getting the ton bags as close to my project as possible.

On shovelling the slate out the bag I found it was of excellent quality and there was no nitty gritty at the bottom of the bag.


First class service and product. Highly rated.

Really pleased with how the stones look, delivery was prompt and buying experience very good.  The only thing that made me rate this as 4  instead of 5 stars is the amount of dust/ debris that needs to be washed off. To be fair the ad does state that washing is required but the amount is excessive

Very pleased with end result. 
Delivery was 2 days late, but this was down to Palletways. 
product was very dusty so had to be washed down in the bag before shovelling into a barrow to move and had had to be washed down several time once laid. 
has a few odd stones that are clearly not slate but were easy enough to pick out. 
now looks really good and I’m very happy. 
was a great price too 😀

Our Reply

Many thanks for your reply.

As you are buying direct from the quarry there are plentiful supplies of stock and the product is usually dispatched the next day through the pallet network. Many of the third party pallet network providers are working through a backlog particularly in the south east and west of England. This does occasionally cause a delay in the delivery by the depot, and we are grateful for your patience. We do try to keep our customers informed of any delays if they occur. 

We do recommend that all product is washed after receipt to ensure the true colour comes through. Thank you for sharing your pictures as your project looks great.

Excellent service and lovely slate. Was expecting the delivery to be on the Friday but got a call to say they had a slot available the next day! Also somehow the turf I ordered from a separate company arrived on the same courier which was ideal.

The service was superb from both the supplier Stone Surfaces  and the haulier Bartrum. Lines of communication were very good also. From ordering to receipt of my order was 4 days including a weekend.  The driver dropped the bulk bag right next to where I was laying the slate. The slate was exactly as described on the website regarding the size, colour and quality of the product. Including delivery the purchase was just over 30% cheaper than the lowest priced Builders merchant in my area. Excellent value.

Great company, had no bother with ordering or delivery. Came in a bulk bag well made and on a strong pallet ,had to clean the stones before laying which was quite messy but that was my choice.Would use them again no problem 

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. When processed into decorative chippings, they are angular and relatively flat, which means they are ideal for gardens, paths and driveways.

Additional key features:

  • South Lakeland Blue Slate Chippings offer lower maintenance, which saves you time compared to other garden landscaping products and is ideal for weed prevention as the slate will help 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 20mm 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.

We also offer the Urban Bag (700kg) for locations with tight access or vehicle weight restrictions, as it uses a smaller delivery vehicle.

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

Location

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.
