What is Bath Stone? About us
Beautiful Bath Stone for Beautiful Buildings
From the days when the Romans used Bath stone in the iconic baths to its modern-day use, Bath stone stands out as unique. This unique look makes it impressive as a building material in terms of aesthetics and structure. Whilst we are most familiar with the honey colour, it comes in shades including greys and even blue. There are multiple different types, and some, like the Stoke Ground Bath stone, are higher-quality and more appealing.
Stoke Ground Bath stone enables architects to use much deeper blocks of stone. This depth adds an exclusive allure that looks grand and exquisite. It’s the understated luxury that many seek in building design. Top Bed Stoke Ground Bath Stone is the ideal Bath stone for carving, ashlar walling and fireplaces.
One of the most distinctive features of our Top Bed is its bed height that can occasionally reach 1600mm. This height makes it particularly attractive to masons and sculptors because it opens up a wealth of creative possibilities.
Stoke Hill Mine, Bath, Somerset
Open cast quarrying at Stoke Hill Mine dates back to the mid-fifteenth century. It is clear it quickly gathered a prestigious name because it was specified for part of the construction of Longleat House in 1568.
