Cotswold Dry Walling Stone has become one of Smiths most popular products. With its subtle honey coloured characteristics and natural Cotswold charm it is no surprise that its popularity has spread nationwide.
This genuine Cotswold dry walling stone is quarried in the north west corner of Oxfordshire, where it is sorted, sized and bagged by experienced personnel, ready for delivery or collection.
Historically dry stone walls were used as a means of field division – miles and miles of these creamy/honey coloured stone walls can still be seen today when driving around the Cotswold countryside. So if it is a more local project, whether for new walls or repairs to the old, Smiths’ stone is an ideal locally sourced stone that can be delivered directly to site.
Increasingly, however, the Cotswold stone is being used further afield and for a variety of other modern construction work. For example: new walling, building of Cotswold styled properties, landscaping projects and it is ideal for exterior and interior facing/cladding. It can also be used to face gabion baskets.
