Whitworth Yorkstone Paving

Manufactured from one of the most durable sandstone bed in the country (the famous Haslington millstone grit series  of Carboniferous age) Whitworth Yorkstone Paving has some of the best performance characteristics of any indigenous Yorkstone paving currently available in this country.

All our paving products are CE marked.

Exceptional compressive and flexural strength characteristics combined with proven frost resistance and exceptional skid/slip performance mean that it is used throughout the UK in major town centre, public realm and private developments, in the most demanding of applications.

Major schemes where Whitworth has been used can be found in London, Chelmsford, Bath, Bristol, Manchester, Nottingham, Sheffield, Northampton, and Edinburgh.

Whitworth Blue Yorkstone is a predominantly blue stone with occasional brown/buff markings and has very low water absorption and high abrasion resistance.
