Woodkirk Yorkstone has been quarried at Britannia Quarries in Leeds, West Yorkshire since 1840. It is a fine grained, carboniferous sandstone ideal for use as paving, on masonry projects and for walling.
We describe our York Stone as a grey buff stone which over time weathers to the classic buff/brown colour that the quarry is renowned for, but when freshly quarried the colours may be more pronounced. The colours generally vary from predominantly brown through to a grey/buff and grey/blue, some stones display swirls and banding. These are natural features of the stone and not defects.
