Promoting Forest of Dean Stone

We supply quality landscaping and building stone from our family run, Mine Train quarry in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire. Pennant sandstone from Bixslade Valley in the Forest of Dean has been used for centuries in the building of churches, houses and boundary walls. In more recent times it has been specified for the renovation of historic buildings throughout the British Isles.

The quality of Mine Train Quarry pennant sandstone is due to its frost resistance properties, low porosity and water absorption, hardness and strength and not least its aesthetic qualities of colour and texture. Comprehensive testing by the Building Research Establishment, has proven the stone to be a strong, hard and durable sandstone, which when quarried using traditional techniques, produces a high quality product for building or landscaping schemes.

We supply direct to landscapers, builders and domestic customers, many after personally visiting the quarry to discuss their specific requirements. Mine Train Quarry stone is supplied throughout the UK in full or part loads, using established haulage companies to ensure prompt and reliable deliveries. This combination of choice/sizes of stone, purchasing direct from the quarry and competitive haulage ensures that customers across the UK, receive exceptional value for money.RHS Chelsea Gold Medal Winning Garden 2000
