About us

Woodkirk Stone has been quarried here in Leeds at Britannia Quarry since 1841. It is one of the largest and most advanced dimensional stone quarries in Europe producing up to 1,000 tonnes of block a week.

Woodkirk is a grey buff sandstone which weathers to a rich, brown colour over time. Many of Britain’s fine Victorian buildings still in use today testify to the durability and long term appeal of this beautiful stone.

Recognising the need to offer other stones to the market place, and being aware of the South East market, Woodkirk Stone Sales opened a Southern factory which trades under the name Farrar Natural Stone and is based in Longstanton near Cambridge. Under the Farrar brand we offer a number of UK sandstones and limestones as well as imported stones.

Woodkirk Stone Sales together with Farrar Natural Stone continue to win recognition for projects as diverse as:

  • City centre paving schemes
  • New build Private/Social Housing
  • Restoration projects

By employing a strong sales and administration team the company is well positioned to offer an excellent service to both new and existing customers.

Woodkirk Stone Sales and Farrar Natural Stone are committed to maintaining a quality service you can rely on.
