Burlington Stone are continuing to invest in British natural stone and the addition of Kirkstone’s range of indigenous natural stones of Brathay Blue / Black, Kirkstone Sea Green and Kirkstone Silver Green ensures local Lake District natural stone will continue to be quarried. Burlington Stone will incorporate the Kirkstone product offering into their existing portfolio.
With the growing availability of imported natural stone, Burlington Stone, believe it is very important to protect and promote the fine heritage and exquisite natural resource they have on their doorstep. Not only has local stone the longevity and durability unparalleled by foreign imports, it is aesthetically pleasing to see the stone fitting into its natural surroundings.
“This is a great opportunity for us to enhance the product offering from British, and in particular Lake District, natural stone producers” comments Nick Williams, Commercial Director at Burlington Stone. “Throughout the world, the natural stone produced in the Lake District is admired and sought after and regarded as one of the finest and most durable stones in the world, which we will continue to promote to the benefit of our local industry.”
