Stonemasonry

Our workshops in Cambridge are fully equipped with modern primary and secondary saws allowing us to cut stone blocks direct from the quarries, ready to be worked by our craftsmen.

The masonry work is mainly carried out by hand, as it has been over the centuries, using a mallet and chisel, but where appropriate, we also make use of modern day hand powered tools and lathes.

 

We are able to produce all types of stonework for the restoration of cathedrals, churches, stately homes and colleges which often involves delicate tracery panels, windows, doorways, copings, columns and balustrades, as well as stone for high specification new build projects.

Our stone is sourced mainly from the limestone quarries of Lincolnshire, Dorset and the West Country and increasingly sandstone from Yorkshire and Cumbria.
We have also used stone from overseas – Caen limestones from Northern France and Carrara marble from Italy.

 

We pride ourselves on the skills of our employees, stonemasons, and machinests alike, all of whom are time served apprentices, the majority having been trained in our own workshops to very high standards.
