Clipsham Stone

Material Origin: United Kingdom


Throughout history stone has been a highly regarded building material, esteemed for its durability, workability and intrinsic, natural beauty. Cheaper building products may have come and gone but affection for stone has remained steadfast, it is regarded by some as being the most aristocratic of building materials.
So what is it that makes a house built of stone so appealing? Could it simply be a case of stone being a natural resource therefore a house built of stone simply 'fits in' to the environment perfectly? Could it be a perceived notion of status - stone's stately credentials undoubtedly owe a lot to its historical use in the construction of government buildings, churches and castles? Perhaps it is simply the fact that the very nature of stone dictates that no two buildings are ever identical, the positioning of each individual hand finished stone needs to be considered before being laid, the masonry needs to be carved with care and precision, the whole construction process then becomes a part of the overall creativity of this beautiful building which then, in turn, becomes a home.
During 2012 we sold in excess of 45,000m2 of cropped walling stone in addition to hundreds of m3 of formal masonry. With the approved expansion of both quarries now underway are confident that anticipated reserves will allow us to sustain, perhaps even increase, this yield for years to come.

Goldholme Stone is undoubtedly one of the fastest growing and well respected names in the British stone industry today. Operating from locations spread across five counties, we can saw and supply limestone faithful to almost any regional colour and textural variation.
Our forte is working closely with project managers and architects to provide a reliable source of building stone and stone masonry for housing developments and corporate building projects across the whole of the country.
Our two main limestone quarries are situated close to Grantham in Lincolnshire produce two main stones: Ancaster Hard White Limestone is extracted from Ancaster Quarry on Sleafford Road, Ancaster. It is a creamy white/beige limestone with a uniform colouration and can be seen in many old buildings throughout the country. Our Hooby Lane Quarry in Stretton, Rutland, 'taps' into the Clipsham Limestone outcrop and yields two distinct colours - Honey and White.
Both of our quarries have recently been granted extensions with Ancaster gaining access to untapped reserves of at least 3.5 million tonnes. Hooby Lane is set to continue yielding its limestone, sometimes referred to as 'Stretton' or 'Clipsham' limestone, for at least a further 40 years. This should secure a reliable supply of stone for many more years to come.
Stone masonry is a very important part of our business and our talented team of stone masons can apply their skills to all aspects of the trade. Architectural masonry is the stone masons daily staple diet, however, we also carve bespoke stone masonry and beautiful solid stone fireplaces. Another aspect of our stone masonry operation is the replacement of damaged or weathered stone components in the restoration of historic buildings.
In addition to our own quarried stone we have large stocks of Ironstone and Cotswold Stone. For further details and/or a quotation, please don't hesitate to contact us.
