A practical and beautiful stone walling from the southern Lake District fells. The slate walling has a weathered mid to dark blue appearance when wet and a pale blue appearance when dry with some natural brown shades. The slate walling is handpicked and varies in length, depth and width but is selected to be relatively flat and to have a flat face so it can be laid by novice gardeners to produce beautiful walls, borders and planters.

All the stone supplied is hand-selected to achieve the traditional random appearance, with the range of piece lengths typically 100-350mm 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 slate emanates from the Silurian period and is over 450million years old and will give the traditional exterior façade often seen in gardens and exterior walls across the lake district in Cumbria and used as a beautiful feature across the homes and gardens of the UK.

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 of the South Lakeland Blue random walling 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 South Lakeland Blue 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.

I'm a dry wall virgin so this impulsive project to build a small front garden wall to define the edge of the driveway was a bit of a lunge into the unknown. This slate was such fantastic quality and so well packed that it was super fun doing it and it's worth the effort. OK so it's not a professional job but it looks fab. Just one thing. This delivery includes only quality stone so you will need to find rubble to fill in the middle of your wall. Have fun and good luck.

Grerat service

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.

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.
