Why did you choose natural stone?
Voysey used rough-cast render with stone window and door surrounds and metal windows on the majority of the country houses he designed. At first we didn’t think we could afford to use natural stone and so reluctantly specified cast stone.
I found Stamford Stone completely by chance. I discussed the design and showed the cast stone samples to an old friend who happens to have a weekend home in Stamford. He told me about Stamford Stone and I found to my surprise that the cost was comparable to the quotes I had for cast stone. I found the stone itself to be incomparably better than any cast stone alternative.
