Since the Victorian era Forest of Dean Stone Firms’ products have been used to construct and complement. Our sandstone is durable and hard-wearing, and can be crafted to suit domestic and commercial applications.
The foundations of our business are built on the creation and supply of architectural masonry. With historic examples standing proud in London, Scotland and across the South West of England and South Wales, these buildings are testament to the heritage and enduring performance of Forest of Dean Pennant Sandstone.
Our stonemasons are fortunate to have crafted pieces of architectural masonry for buildings of historical importance, such as Goodrich Castle, to an award winning folly to house chickens! Forest of Dean Stone Firms can supply a full range of architectural masonry products.
Forest of Dean Pennant Sandstone is renowned for its monumental qualities; it is strong, durable and maintains a sharp, clean edge when lettering. It produces a beautiful, enduring tribute. We regularly supply monumental masons with our sawn six sides product and can create replacement items for existing memorials that are falling into disrepair.
While the kitchen is often described as the heart of the home we think a fireplace gives it soul. It can be the most dramatic feature in any space; be it a large, ornate fire surround or a simple hearthstone we have the skill and expertise to help transform your room.
We supply Forest Pennant sawn two and sawn six sides; sawn two side “scant” is ideal for stockists or masonry companies that want to reduce the cost by finishing the end product themselves or to offer an off the shelf solution to customers, the perfect opportunity to show the customer a full-size format, plan sizes up to 2500 x 1100 at a variety of thicknesses. Alternatively choose the sawn six-sided pennant material, ideal for masonry companies without cutting capability or for quick turnaround.
We supply Forest Pennant Block. Our bed heights are generally between 600cm – 1m high and are split into random sizes weighing up to 10 tonnes. The colour of the block is random as our beds are not uniform - some are one solid colour, others are mixed, from blue to grey/green with brown markings. The outer and inner core can often be different colours.
