Where can you find our block stone?
Clipsham limestone is the most renowned of all the Lincolnshire limestones. Popular with planners and architects, Clipsham is a great alternative to Bath, Portland and Ketton stone. Over the years it’s proven to be durable, malleable and resilient. Aesthetic appeal also helps: its ever popular honey colouring sits perfectly in the majority of limestone landscapes, from the City of London to Cotswold stone villages.
You’ll probably be familiar with Clipsham stone for its use in iconic buildings like Windsor Castle, Cambridge colleges and in restoration projects including The House of Commons.
As a result, its reputation endures. This is due in part to its specification in historical buildings and ongoing popularity with stonemasons. Modern housebuilders are also choosing natural stone for new developments.
