About Us

Stone has always been part of our family history and local heritage.

Based just outside the beautiful stone town of Stamford, we’re lucky enough to live and work on the famous Lincolnshire limestone belt.

You can find our stone all over the country. We’ve contributed to some very prestigious projects. Think of quintessentially British buildings including Peterborough Cathedral, Windsor Castle and the Houses of Parliament.

Our expertise also extends to new developments for the next generation of homeowners. Not forgetting the stunning orangery at Grade I listed Rushton Hall in Northamptonshire nor exciting restoration projects in historic Oxford and Cambridge.

That’s the beauty of stone. It lends itself to a rich diversity of building projects that shape the landscape where we live, work and come together.

State of the art production facilities

We own and operate local quarries – the first is our 20 acre Clipsham Medwells Quarry, over a century old. The second is our 30 acre Greetham site, which we took over in 2014.

Our quarry at Swaddywells is perhaps better described as a stone engineering processing centre. Investing in advanced cutting equipment means we can now produce ashlar cladding pieces. This allows natural limestone to be used as either a fully constructional element or a lightweight cladding material.

Our expert sawing and cropping techniques (which include sawing on bed in heights of 65, 90, 115 and 140mm) make the natural stone easier to lay. It can therefore be used by normal bricklayers as well as specialist stonemasons.

A business built on rock solid foundations

Committed to remaining a family business, Stamford Stone is currently led by the second generation.

Nothing has changed from when we launched our business in 1997. We’re still as passionate about our products, the way we do business and our customers as we were at the very beginning.

To what do we owe our success?

Changes in technology – from mechanisation which began in the 1950s to the state of the art CNC saws we use today. This guarantees accuracy and consistency like never before. We’ve witnessed huge advances that have improved our processes. However, the careful finishing by hand of our skilled stonemasons will never be replaced.

Good collaborations – we’ve established excellent ongoing relationships with everyone we supply. Consequently, architects, specifiers, housebuilders and conservation specialists in building, commercial and retail sectors frequently approach us first.

Environmental responsibility – we’re very aware of preserving the landscape around our quarries. As a result, we have a renewal plan in place so that we can assure green spaces in the future.

With sustainability such a key word in architecture and construction, we are committed to doing everything we can to take care of our resources. Find out more at our environmental policy.

Finally, we love what we do. Working with a beautiful natural product that enhances buildings never loses its appeal – it’s incredibly satisfying to be using the past to invest in the future.
