Material Origin: United Kingdom

Description:

Quarried near Melsonby in Richmondshire.

Scotch Buff is medium grained, buff coloured sandstone with varying degrees of darker bed markings. The stone derives its name from the fact that the quarry is situated only a mile or so from Scotch Corner on the A1. The stone has excellent weathering capabilities and is ideally suited for all building purposes. There are large reserves with long term planning consent.

The quarry was first worked as early as 1788 and used in a number of prestigious buildings in the area, although historical records are few. Since the re-opening of the quarry by Block Stone in 2001, it has been used on many important projects such as Harrogate Royal Baths; Glasgow Cross; Richmond Bridge; Western Harbour in Leith; Several restoration projects in Bradford and the Aston Martin factory at Gaydon.

The quarry is worked periodically by our Northern quarry team, either to order or to replenish stocks at the BlockStore in Cadeby. When the team is working at the quarry, collection with artics is available.

Availability from stock is usually 24 hrs. as with all our stones.. Please contact our sales office for further details on 01246 554450 or email: office@blockstone.com

Average block size: 1500L x 1000W x 800H

Blockstone is one of the UK’s leading dimensional stone quarrying companies, operating 8 quarries across the UK. Producing dimensional stone block for use in the UK and International Construction Industries, we can offer a wide selection of colours and textures to choose from in both limestone and sandstone.
Located within the Cadeby Quarry, Blockstone has created the unique ‘BlockStore‘ which holds large stocks for all of our stone types, ensuring a quick, reliable and high quality supply for projects both large or small. Our Quarry Teams work the quarries in turn to order or to replenish stocks at the BlockStore in our Cadeby Quarry near Doncaster where we will always maintain good stocks of all our stones.
The sheer scale of the BlockStore is astonishing. This facility is unique in the UK and holds a huge volume of both Limestone and Sandstone all extracted from our own quarries. Clients visiting the BlockStore can view a wide range of stone options all in one location.
Also within our Cadeby quarry, we have a very large permanent area where you will find a varied selection of stone cladding mock-ups from previous projects, as well as examples of standard Ashlar cladding for each of our stone types.
It is not uncommon for clients to be expected to select materials from small samples; NOT with Blockstone, clients have the benefit of full scale cladding displays and large slabs to assist in the selection process. Following this review, there is a short walk to the BlockStore where you are able to see, touch and select the actual block for your project.
Offering the largest portfolio of UK quarried dimensional stone available the BlockStore offers ease of selection and a one stop shop for any clients requirements whether it be traditional masonry facades or more contemporary rainscreen design.
A visit to the BlockStore is a must for any architect or client contemplating the use of stone as it takes the visitor into a world of selection and choice not seen anywhere else in UK.
