The unique character and composition of Crosland Hill Yorkstone gives the mineral a hardness and durability that has made it synonymous with quality paving and landscaping projects across the UK.
Predominantly buff with naturally occurring veining together with high slip resistance and strength, Crosland Hill Yorkstone is one of the most versatile natural stones available, its technical capabilities are renown throughout the industry and it has traditionally been used as paving for pedestrian and trafficked areas for many years.
A clear advantage of Crosland Hill Yorkstone is its ability to connect both internal and external areas. From interior features to external façade and landscaped areas such as courtyards, atriums and gardens including anti-slip paving, walling and benches, few natural stone types can successfully provide an aesthetically cohesive solution across this multitude of areas.
Many townscapes, commercial projects and residential properties have been enhanced with Crosland Hill Yorkstone paving from Johnsons Wellfield. The result is a continued and enduring legacy for future generations.
