Each bed of Purbeck stone offers different colours ranging from grey/blue to cream/beige. All beds are of good quality crystalline limestone laid down in the Jurassic/Cretaceous era and each layer is unique in its fossil content.

It makes excellent building stone and internal and external paving. It is highly sought after in polished form for cladding, hearths, mantels and vanity/worktops. It is also popular for all aspects of landscaping.
