Forest of Dean Stone
5/ 5 Stars

"From first enquiry to delivery of the stone, I found everyone really good to deal with.  It was especially helpful to know lead times up front so the landscaper could plan the job properly."

"I'm writing to thank you, your colleagues and staff for the generous support of the Building Stones Colloquium.

My colleagues enjoyed speaking to Paul Ramsey on the day and our delegates appreciated the chance to win a copy of the lovely book. Delegates and staff are all delighted with the stone coasters.

Your generous financial contribution closed the gap on our match funding requirement and will make the cash flow in the final few months of the project much less of an issue for us.

"It has been a pleasure to deal with everyone at Forest of Dean Stone Firms.
Regarding the finished fireplace, we are very pleased; all of our friends have admired it.
The fireplace itself was modelled on one the company made for my father for his farm house over sixty years ago!

"Thank you for getting the stone for our chimney cut in time to be put in place. Your ability to cut the stone so promptly gave us more than ample time to make sure the job was finished on schedule, and we appreciate that.

The staff (managerial and manual) were all very helpful and accommodating. It was a good experience all round, and in turn, refreshing. Thank you again."

"We have worked with FOD Stone Firms on many occasions and have found their service to be excellent! Delivery dates have always been adhered to.

We have recently completed a contract on the new Clevedon Pier Visitors Centre which was a huge success. The level of help provided by Paul Ramsey, Paul Blake and their team on this project was crucial, and it wouldn’t have been such a success without them. "

"On behalf of the students and Diana could I thank you for the visit to Barnhill Quarry and your stoneworks. There is always something new to see each time we come. Student feedback on this visit is always positive and we were late this year because students were interested and asked lots of questions. We ended up with a very short trip to Symonds Yat!

Thank you again for your help, particularly for arranging the stone splitting demonstration. As this has become an annual event we look forward to next year."

"Dear Mr Horton
I would like to thank you for the immense trip around the quarry and stoneworks.

I think it was an amazing trip because we got to look at the different layers of stone. I also liked it because at the stoneworks I saw the big saw.

I will never forget it because of the big drill that cut the rocks and made cracks!"

"Thank you very much indeed for the splendid tour you laid on for members of the Gloucestershire Society for Industrial Archaeology.

It was very kind of you to give up your time and withstand the continuous barrage of questions from our members. The latter I trust is a very good indicator of how interesting we found it.

Rarely have we had such a comprehensive and presented tour, starting as we did at Barnhill Quarry, seeing how the massive sandstone blocks are extracted and split. Then we saw the various processes down at the stoneworks right through to the final products.

It was good to hear that these quality products are in such high demand and we wish the company every success in the future."
