Guilting Gold Block

Description

This distinctive bed produces a slightly darker, more golden or honey coloured block bed consistent with a wide variety of historic Cotswold towns and villages.  The golden hue of the stone and its medium grain texture makes it suitable for all walling, building and masonry requirements.  The block sizes are unusually substantial for a Cotswold quarry with block height of up to 2 metres and to an individual size of up to 14 tonnes.  At the present time, the quarry production of the Guiting Gold block is running at around 6000 tonnes per annum.

PLEASE NOTE: The stone image on this page is only as accurate as the screen/print out device allows. It is strongly recommended that you request a sample of the stone to check colour and texture prior to ordering.
