Sawn York stone Whitworth Grey

Whitworth Grey York Stone

Traditionally when people think of York Stone, they envision the buff, creamy colour. However, York Stone is available in another hue, called Whitworth Grey. This is a pale grey stone with blooms of buff running through, giving movement and depth to the stone.

This York Stone is Diamond sawn 6 sides, creating perfectly smooth paving. We generally cut the stone 600mm wide random lengths x 40mm or 50mm, however, we can cut to specific sizes and dimensions.  We also produce Steps and Risers, including Bullnosing and Copings etc.

Whitworth Grey is a fantastic alternative to traditional buff coloured York Stone. It can also be a more economical alternative to Reclaimed York Stone, matching with existing paving and eventually weathering down.  It is important to remember this is a natural product so the stone may contain a small amount of veining. However, this veining is characteristic of York Stone.

Whitworth grey can sometimes be overlooked, as many think that  the grey will be a bland colour that won’t add depth to a garden, this is a common assumption and not correct, used in a contemporary setting, coursed in set sizes,the stone gives a modern edge to the design, although if laid in a random pattern in sizes of 600mm wide x Random lengths, the stone takes on an almost antique style.
