About Our Client

First and foremost, we love what we do, working with a fantastic natural product that enhances buildings and never loses its beauty is incredibly satisfying. Committed to remaining a family business, we are 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.

Stone has been part of our family heritage and has played an incredibly important role in the local history. Based just outside the UK's best place to live, the beautiful stone town of Stamford, we're lucky enough to work on the famous Lincolnshire limestone belt. Stone from our quarries is used all over the country, including some very prestigious projects. Think of quintessentially British buildings including Peterborough Cathedral, Windsor Castle and the Houses of Parliament.

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.

What do we owe our success to? Changes in technology have definitely helped– from mechanisation which we began with in the 1950s to the state of the art CNC saws we use now. This guarantees accuracy and consistency like never before but the careful finishing by hand of our skilled stonemasons will never be replaced by machines.

Because we are such a helpful, friendly team we've established excellent ongoing relationships with our clients. Our reputation for quality, variance and efficiency mean that we don't have to sell ourselves or our product, in fact architects, specifiers, housebuilders and conservation specialists in building, commercial and retail sectors know who we are, what we can do and come to us because they know the service is second to none.
