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. We also offer the URBAN BAG [700kg] for locations with tight access or vehicle weight restrictions, as it uses a smaller delivery vehicle.

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.

The benefits of 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.

Excellent service. Had loads of questions which were all answered by sales team and or manager who called back to confirm details. Order was simple online with accurate calculator for space to fill with slate chippings and paddlestones on top. Delivery partner was very helpful, great communication about date of delivery and timing on the day to awkward location with only on street parking. Ideal all round service at every stage.

The slate seems good quality and there was no other colours or materials mixed in which I’ve read some other suppliers tend to do. The colour is just what I was after.

Excellent product - the slate is a particularly nice shade of blue, not too vivid but has a tint that makes it far more attractive than the greys normally found on the mass market. Looks even better when damp. Delivery was excellent with the builders’ bags placed exactly where we needed them on the drive. Only slight gripe is that I now have three pallets to get rid of! Highly recommended and would use again.

The large bag of green slate arrived on time. The only issue for me was that the delivery was placed on the driveway to the garage rather than a free area next to the bins which was my preferred option. I have begun covering an old hen run using black membrane and shovelling the green slate on top of that so its starting to look almost normal again.

No blame on STONE & SURFACES DIRECT because I ordered the wrong size of slate but I don't think it matters too much as no one can see it where its being laid. Its an excellent product and I would definitely recommend it

Hi Jordan,

Many thanks for your comments. I am pleased the product you ordered met with your expectation, but note there was an issue with the delivery. We use Pallet Track as our third party transport provider because they have the resources to give the national coverage and an electronic order processing system which means that orders are scanned through their system to enable a mail tracker to be sent to our customers. We will take this matter up with Pallet Track as  their system has failed in this instance, and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. The tracker is also deigned to give an ETA  and we also provide a dedicated telephone number for calls enabling us to chase up the depots concerned.

Had a great first delivery of 40ml blue slate everything was perfect down to the delivery driver. Made another order of the same . Same delivery driver very helpful and cheerful. Bit of a problem with this order a large bag of 40ml blue slate. A lot of the slate was a lot smaller then 40 ml and there was half a barrow load of just dust in the bag. I was surprised as the first large bag had 40 ml slate right through to the bottom. Over all pleased with the service and price would have liked it all to have been slate rather then dust in my 2nd order. M. Holbrough

Thank you for your reply, As you are buying direct we do monitor the stock that is processed regularly. Occasionally when taking product from the base of the stock pile there can be an extra content of the small fines that you refer to. This is not normal but where the ratio is excessive we encourage our customers to send us a photograph so we can if necessary supply a top up FOC.

5 star rating for the ‘on time’ delivery both times (3 x 700kg bags and then 2 x 700kg bags) and the quality of the 40mm slate…excellent colour and thickness.My one suggestion would be to give another option for deliver as a truck and Pallet Jack system isn’t great when you have a large area to fill and the driver will only put your pallets on the driveway and not even attempt to get them onto the front garden to help you get it nearer. Shovelling 3 tonnes of slate out of those bags ain’t fun and if it came on a truck with a hydronic grabber and arm it would have made things much easier. Please consider this for the future health of your customers :)

Hi Andy,

Many thanks for your comments. As all our consignments are dispatched and delivered through the pallet  network across the UK, we are reliant upon the equipment that is typical and standard, which are tail lift vehicles and their use of hydraulic pallet trucks to manoeuvre consignments as close to the area you want. This does mean it can only be moved on hard surfaces. Your comments are nevertheless very helpful and we will relay these to pallet track our transport provider. 

Many thanks

I was left with very little dust at the bottom of the bag, so certainly value for money. Dry the colour is more grey than blue/grey, but wet it is lovely. Would order again. Be warned, shovelling it from the builders bag is hard work!

Great value as DIY stores were charging twice the price. Read reviews about buying bulk across a number of suppliers and saw a lot about quality of product and that it was mixed with other stones or was majority dust after 1/2 a bag. I was prepared to get 50-75% use but this was 100% and I used everything, the dust I could have probably put in a cereal bowl. If all bags came like this I will definitely buy again. This is excellent value, the same product in B&Q was £164 and 50KG less. If I did it by the 22KG bag I'd need at least 40 costing me over £250. I only gave it 4 stars because the delivery came a day later then expected. Will buy again for the other half of my project.

You'll get no dregs, just proper sized slate pieces throughout the bag which look absolutely lovely around our house.

The in-laws stuck in a few plants which look okay too.

The delivery didn't go to plan with the bag only turning up on Monday when it was due on the Friday but that's not really Stone & Surfaces fault.

Hello,

Many thanks for your comments. We do try to ensure our delivery provider Pallet Track meets the service criteria agreed with our customers. In the current scenario with the need to agree to government guidelines surrounding Covid this is occasionally compromised and we do our best to let our customers know when this occurs.

I did wonder how this delivery would be effected from the Lake District to South Wales, but everything went as specified. The driver did have a problem accessing my street due to inconsiderate parking on junctions, but he cheerfully unloaded and brought the very well packed & secure pallet down the street on his pallet truck. Ist class delivery of a first class product at a very competitive price.

Excellent product, good quality slate. Delivered on time. Only minor gripe was the delivery came on a  pallet lorry. Needed to help the driver get the load off the lorry. Fine for me but probably not for an elderly customer.

Our Reply

Many thanks for your reply.All our orders are dispatched through pallet track and are delivered on vehicles with a tail lift and hydraulic pump truck. Because the products are dispatched nationally through the pallet network it is not possible to provide a crane off load facility.

Our Reply

Thank you for your feedback, the product can look a little more grey than blue at first as they are often quite dusty from the processing carried out at the quarry. It is a good idea to give the chippings a good wash after laying to allow the natural tones and colours of the slate to show.

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.

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.
