Our stunning Bancroft Riven York Stone coping is quarried and hand-finished by our skilled stonemasons in Bradford using the best-quality slab rock you’ll find in the area (and in the world, in our opinion). The hand-dressed edge finish is a traditional technique created with a hammer and chisel. It’s time-consuming and highly demanding, but the resulting riven texture is simply impossible to achieve any other way. Bancroft stone has a slight veining, and the inconsistent colouration and natural markings gives it a highly distinctive look that will last you a lifetime and more. If you do choose our Bancroft Riven, we recommend using a natural stone sealant.
