Product details

Rustic & Weathered Style Flagstone

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 Flagstones

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.

  • The overall look and feel of Cathedral is a yellowy-grey blend.
  • Iron grey, pearl and saffron accents.

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.

Natural Stone Paving

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.

Why Limestone Patios?

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.

Weathered & Antique Look & Feel

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.

Reclaimed Flagstones

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.

Tudor Antique Flagstone Range

The Pavestone Tudor Antique Flagstone range includes the following products:

Tudor Cobbles Range

In addition to Tudor Antique Flagstones, Pavestone also offers the following antique style cobbles:

The Beauty of Natural Stone

Natural stone means natural variation! Please remember that natural stone paving is a processed natural product and therefore has unique and intrinsic elements, markings, features, patterns, hues and tones within the stone that makes each slab distinct. This is the essential characteristic that natural stone offers and what makes it so special, and why it works so well in landscaping and garden design. Each stone is entirely unique, and within each paving pack there is natural variation of each stone. When these individual unique slabs are blended and laid together, you get a tapestry of harmonious, but different slabs. And this natural relationship between the slabs is what gives stone paving its essential charm and beauty.

If you are looking for more uniformity and control of colours and patterns, then porcelain paving or concrete paving might be more what you want.

Light, Weather & Colouring

Natural stone will appear differently in varied lighting conditions, so in bright sunshine versus cloud your patio will have a different appearance. Likewise, the angle of the sun will also change the appearance of your paving. The biggest difference in appearance will be wet versus dry stone. Stone is porous, and therefore, rainfall will penetrate the stone, making it darker and making colours and pigments in the stone appear more vivid. These changes in the appearance are also part of the character you are buying into when you choose stone paving for your patio. It is a natural product, and it is a dynamic canvas that reflects the weather and lighting conditions as they change.

Laying Advice

To install and lay stone patio paving slabs, you'll need to do the following steps:

  1. Measure up and mark out your patio - ensure you calculate both 1) area in square metres (m2)  and 2) the fall (slope) required for your drainage plan.
  2. Dig out the patio area to create the substrate (220 -230 mm depth).
  3. Lay the sub-base of MOT Type-1 hardcore (compacted & 150 mm depth).
  4. Ensure you mix and blend the various paving packs to make sure the patio has a blended look, as pack to pack can vary in hue/colour distribution, so the packs need mixing up to avoid possible colour banding when they are laid.
  5. Coat the slabs' underside with priming slurry to improve their bond and help prevent moisture transfer. As stone is porous, priming slurry will help protect the slabs from moisture transfer and capillary action from beneath the slabs.
  6. Trowel-in and lay a bedding course of mortar mix (50 mm depth) immediately prior to laying each slab.
  7. Lay the paving slabs on to the mortar bed and tamp down. Ensure you leave the desired joint spacing between the slabs and the slabs are “level” to the fall.
  8. Leave to set for 24 hours, so the mortar mix can cure enough for you to walk on the slabs.
  9. Fill the joints between the paving (pointing) with jointing compound.
  10. Optional: protect your paving by sealing the slabs with a purpose made sealant (natural finish or colour enhancing).

To calculate the areas of paving in square-metres (m2), the amount of sub-base hardcore or the amount of sand and cement you'll need for the mortar mix bedding course, please refer to our paving calculators.

Care & Maintenance

Stone is a porous material and contains tiny capillaries and micro-fissures throughout its structure. Consequently, stone paving is susceptible to water-based chemical erosion (acidic corrosion), physical erosion (frost action), and from staining from waterborne grime, salts and other mineral and particulate deposits. Therefore, as the UK has high winter humidity (generally 80-90%) and damp conditions are the norm, we recommend that you help protect and elongate the life of your paving by sealing the slabs against the water/damp based issues. Our impregnating sealers are designed to enter the capillaries and micro-fissures in the slabs, blocking those spaces to prevent water entering the paving.

  1. Natural finish sealer
  2. Colour enhancing sealer

In addition to sealing the slabs, we recommend ensuring you brush away leaves, dirt and other detritus regularly, especially in the autumn and winter when leaves, twigs, seeds and other windfall materials are likely to fall on your patio. If left on your paving, especially if damp, and worse still, allowed to rot down and become mulch-like, your paving will almost certainly acquire brown stains from the release of tannins from the windfall materials (think a used tea bag left on a kitchen counter for a model of what will happen).

As well as brushing off dirt and windfall materials, give your patio a hose down with water every so often. Use a low-pressure hose or keep any jet-wash far enough away from the slabs to ensure you don't damage them with the high-pressure water jet. For more stubborn stains and the build-up of grime, we recommend using a specialist non-acidic patio cleaner that will help lift out the dirt and grime.
