Yorkstone Steps

Beautiful and Practical

York Stone Steps and York Stone Doorsteps Yorkstone is one of the finest sandstones in the world and the perfect choice when you need fine-looking buff coloured steps and paving. The stone we use is hand selected from Yorkshire and despite being over 300 million years old (older than the dinosaurs) it is remarkably fine and even grained, and our stonemasons make it look brand new. For doorsteps and our paving we choose Yorkstone that is largely free from colour banding and avoid distinct bedding.

Portland Stone was expensive even in Sir Christopher Wren’s day yet remains justly popular for prestigious entrances. Portland Stone is a limestone which was laid down in shallow tropical seas during the age of the dinosaurs and contains the remains of many small fossil sea shells and corals. Whilst Jurassic limestone is common worldwide, the marble-like appearance of Portland Stone is highly desirable and almost unique. Unlike Marble however, it is easily carved to fit and does not go slippery when wet, making it ideal for doorsteps. The stone is still quarried on the Isle of Portland, Dorset from where it took its name, then worked by masons into the finished product. It was said that, “the streets of London are...
