Cotswold Cream Block

Description

A traditional, warm Cotswold cream block bed with medium grain texture and some small clusters of interesting shell and fossil.  This bed is capable of producing in excess of 10,000 tonnes of fine masonry quality blocks annually in block up to 1.5 metres high and to an individual size of up to 10 tonnes.  The highly consistent nature of this block allows for a wide diversity of uses from external windows, chimney and copings to sawn and cropped walling through to internal floor tiles and fireplaces.
