This range of block paving and cobble setts are manufactured from natural limestone paving materials. Limestone paving is mainly available in a choice of three options: a creamy buff mix with grey and ochre undertones, a blue grey blend and a dark grey-black that gradually lightens in sunlight. Choose block paving if you prefer the ease of laying on a sand bed, using the same techniques as concrete block paving or select cobble setts for laying on a mortar bed with a more rustic appearance ideal for pathways and edgings.

Natural limestone block paving and cobble setts are an excellent choice for any paving project. Both materials are incredibly durable and long lasting, making them a great investment for your home or business. In addition, limestone and cobble sets offer a unique and stylish look that can really add kerb appeal to your property.
Limestone is a sedimentary rock that is formed over millions of years. It is inherently strong and resistant to damage, which makes it ideal for use in paving projects.
Block paving is made by cutting blocks of limestone into specific sizes and then laying them on an MOT Type 1 sub-base and a screeded sharp sand bedding layer in a desired pattern.
Cobble setts are made by shaping rocks into small cubes or rectangular blocks often with handcut, cropped edges to give a slightly irregular and rustic appearance. They are then laid in a similar manner to paving slabs, on an MOT Type 1 sub-base and a full wet mortar bed, but the smaller size of the setts allows for a more intricate design. The handcut-edges give a slightly irregular rustic appearance to the finished design.
Choosing the right paving materials for your project can be a daunting task, but it's important to choose materials that will stand the test of time and look great. Natural limestone is one of the most popular choices for paving projects because it's durable, beautiful, and easy to maintain. There are many reasons to choose limestone block paving or cobble setts for your next paving project. Their durability and stylish appearance make them a wise investment, and their natural strength ensures that your project will last for many years to come.
Limestone is available in three main colour choices - a buff colour which tips into shades of grey with occasional rust overtones, a blue grey option with a subtle mottled finish and occasional bronze and a dark grey-black colour that is often very dark when newly quarried and gradually lightens in sunlight. Limestone is gently pitted in texture and has a matte finish.

Natural Paving Ebony cobble setts as 100x100mm, 200x100mm or a mixed size option offer a rustic appearance in a dark velvety grey colour. The tumbling process creates a sfter, weatherworn aged finish to the edges and surface of the paving. The smaller size setts are ideal as lawn edging or for creating tighter curved areas.
