The green slate was exactly what I needed to build an informal retaining wall and rockery. They were all good quality and I received a variety of sizes. They look great, especially when wet. They were a very good price as well.

The delivery driver was very helpful as well and managed to get the 18T lorry down our long narrow drive.

Perfect in every way. I'll be back for more at some point.

good quality and a prompt delivery. Would recommend.

These beautiful green natural slate rockeries are from the quarry at Elterwater in the hills of Langdale Valley, in the heart of the Lake District. This stone has a light green colour that brightens when wet and has the occasional red tones and flecks of a white spa.

All pieces vary from around 200mm to 400mm in length.

Lakeland Green slate is one of the hardest, most durable slates in the world as it is a metamorphic volcanic stone from the Ordovician period formed 450-500 million years ago.

The geological composition of Lakeland Green slate rockery means they are unlikely to change the PH levels of ponds or soil. Therefore, they are suitable for planting borders and a great choice for ponds and water features as it is fish friendly (wash before use).

Please note: Bulk bags of green slate rockery are 850kg (many other suppliers offer 700-800kg under the term bulk bag). You get 7.5 - 15% more rockery when you buy with Stone & Surfaces Direct.

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

Elterwater Quarry

Our Westmorland Green slate aggregate is green in colour and in its environmental credentials, as it is processed from the quarry overburden and offcuts derived from the production of the roofing slate used on iconic historical buildings such as Buckingham Palace and Tower Bridge, in London.

Elterwater Quarry


The quarry is situated at the foot of the Langdale valley, Nr Coniston, Cumbria, where slate has been extracted since the middle of the nineteenth century. Elterwater is pale green in colour and is a metamorphic volcanic stone from the Ordovician period, and thus formed 450-500 million years ago. The geology of the rock means it is one of the most durable and hard-wearing natural stones available and as a result ideal for use in a wide range of applications such as roofs, paving, walls, and as an aggregate for driveways and various areas around a house or building.
