Bought 20 paddlestones.  Of these 17 were a very substantial size.  Other three worked well in combination with others.  Very pleased overall.  Delivery was one day late, but still not too long to wait.

Ordered 10 slate stepping stones. Excellent communication. Stones delivered on time. Delighted with 9 of the 10 stones.  One stone, however, not fit for purpose...

Added 04-05. 
True to the seller's word, I explained my disappointment with the one stone and they immediately agreed to provide a replacement without demur. In summary, a fantastic product from a top trader who knows the importance of customer satisfaction. A 5 star transaction!

Thanks for the message. All the stepping stones are hand selected as each are different as it is a natural material. If there is a one that is unusable and we are able to understand why we will happily exchange the product.

Five stars - excellent delivery, even better quality than expected when we received them. Very good quality stone, the mix was a great selection and has allowed us to be more creative. The stones are quite thick, about 3-4 inches so they sit quite deep in the ground but are stable as a result. These are so much better than paving slabs or anything you'd be able to buy at a garden centre. Highly recommended.

Lovely slate stepping stones, perfect for the job and quickly and efficiently delivered. Just waiting for the weather to improve to dig them level with the ground.

THE ONLY ONLINE SUPPLIER OF NATURAL STONE STEPPING STONES FROM THE LAKES DISTRICT. 

Natural stone stepping stones are unique as they are hand-selected for use as stepping stones from the blue slate quarry in the southern Lake District fells. The stone has a weathered, mid to dark blue appearance when wet and a pale blue appearance when dry with some natural brown shades. We recommend each piece is washed before use and you select the side most desired for foot traffic. 

All pieces vary from around 400mm to 700mm in length and range in thickness of between 50 - 135mm.

The South Lakeland blue slate stepping stones are from the Kirkby in Furness quarry in the southern Lake District fells in Cumbria. 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.

This rockery slate has a lower carbon footprint than most other natural materials of its type as it is delivered directly from the quarry.

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.

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.
