‘Yorkstone’ is a sandstone, a sedimentary rock comprising mainly of quartz with a small proportion of other minerals such as feldspar and mica. It has provided a tried and tested building material across the UK for hundreds of years.

Despite the widespread use of the name ‘Yorkstone’, the genuine article can only be sourced from the county of Yorkshire. Crosland Hill Natural Hard Yorkstone is widely regarded as being the finest Yorkstone available.

Crosland Hill Yorkstone possesses an ideal balance across a range of technical requirements giving the mineral an unparalleled flexibility of use whilst maintaining the critical hardness and durability required for longevity of the finished product.

Medium to fine grained, Crosland Hill Yorkstone is light buff in colour and has naturally occurring colour variations which are enhanced by general weathering as the stone matures. Since 1961 Johnsons Wellfield has been the sole company working the Crosland Hill Natural Hard Yorkstone reserves.
