Cathedral Tudor Antique Limestone Paving - These golden-yellow and light grey natural limestone flagstones have light brown highlights with a time-worn riven surface and tumbled edges.
The Pavestone Tudor Antique range was created to present the appeal of period and antique flagstones of yesteryear. It offers bucolic and rustic style paving, with the appearance of softening and weathering over time, creating the perfect aesthetic to compliment historic and traditional homes and gardens.
Cathedral Limestone is made up of a blend of colours; it is predominantly light grey but includes light golden browns and buff amongst the main stone colours. It has accents and hues of gold, saffron, pearl, ivory and iron-grey. This paving will be sympathetic to a range of traditional properties from the medieval to the late Georgian period.
Before laying your flagstones, examine and select the pavers. You want to vary the blend of colours, tones and hues, to ensure your patio or terrace has the right contrast and mix of colours that gives Cathedral its look and feel.
As with any natural product be aware variation is normal and to be expected. Limestone is a sedimentary rock. This means it was created on the seabed floor as numerous layers of sand and sediment were laid down and compressed over many millions of years. This process of formation means the stone has natural variations. There will be differences in patterning, where varied colour sands were laid down and blended to form the rock, resulting in veins and brushes of different colours intermingled with the core colours.
Colours, tones and patterns vary naturally. These are not carbon copy flagstones; each is unique, with their own natural character. That is precisely what you are buying when you select these natural products - the beauty and unique character of the natural stone tapestry.
Cathedral flagstones are available in the following pack formats:
In bygone eras, stonemasons and landscapers were looking for some specific characteristics when selecting flagstones for paving. The first was that the stone should be soft enough to easily quarry, hewn, cut, work and dress; the second was that the stone should be hardwearing and durable enough to last many generations once it was laid. That’s why historically Limestone was chosen. It is an ideal stone for paving and we still benefit from these timeless qualities today many millennia later.
Tudor Antique flagstones are hand-crafted and specially designed by our stonemasons to provide the right antique/period bygone look and feel. The surface of the flagstone has a riven finish, meaning the stones have small ridges and patterns where they have been hewn and split.
The flagstones are then tumbled, a process akin to a gentle spin in a washing machine. This process softens and rounds the edges of the flagstones to give them a time-worn and weathered antique appearance.
Buying genuine antique reclaimed flagstones can be a costly affair. The Tudor Antique range offers you a cost-effective alternative with more aesthetic consistency and control, plus the supply volume is not limited either, so if you need coverage for larger areas you can guarantee you will have enough flagstones.
