Yorkstone is a local variety of sandstone quarried in the county of Yorkshire in the United Kingdom.
Additional recommended knowledge
Known for its hard wearing and durable qualities Yorkstone has been used in a wide array of building, construction and landscaping applications around the world for many years.
Yorkstone is popular in both new construction and restoration. Many quarries are still being worked in Yorkshire to provide new Yorkstone. The colour of Yorkstone depends on the minerals within its makeup and differs throughout the quarries from which it is mined. Newly quarried Yorkstone is usually available as slabs for paving, setts (cobbles) and walling stones.
