A visit to Burlington Stone in Cumbria

I wanted to share some images of a great visit to Burlington Stone in Cumbria.  The markings found in natural materials can vary enormously, so I was approving a stack of gorgeous green slate for a client's installation.  It was important that there was a good match with other materials and colourways.

What a great spot this is - and Andrew Townsley, the Architectural Foreman (pictured below), couldn't have been more helpful - Thanks Andrew!

I love a factory visit - especially when the end product is of such high quality, as it is here.  There was cutting, polishing, and more texturing options than I had seen before.  And all on the side of a picturesque Cumbrian valley.
