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 450million 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.

South Lakeland blue slate chippings are:

The 40mm South Lakeland blue slate chippings have a 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 minimal maintenance and the occasional top-up.

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 40mm 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 slate was perfect in size and colour and just what we wanted really happy with the quality and price.  The service from stone and surfaces direct has been excellent we didn't have any trouble or delay with delivery.  The delivery man was very freindly and helpful, he could have done with an updated pallet trolley to help him manouver 2 tons of slate easily.  Overall very satisfied and would recommend.

Found the company to be very helpfully.  The slate is slightly different to the Welsh slate but nothing to complain about especially for the price.

I bought a large bag which is shown as being 850k, there was more than that in the bags they sent me. 

No delay with delivery, fitted in with a day to suit me and contacted on the day with time.

Great price and great service throughout.

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.
