Burlington Stone are honoured to be supplying calibrated Westmorland green roofing slate to the Australian Prime Minister’s official residence.

Local Cumbrian newspaper, North West Evening Mail, has highlighted to their South Lakeland readership, this prestigious project, which Burlington Stone has been involved in.  Over 17,100 Westmorland Green roofing slates have been shipped over to Australia and will be used to tile the roof of The Lodge in Canberra, which is occupied by the current Prime Minister, Julia Gillard.  Both the aesthetic beauty of the 450 million year old stone and the outstanding technical properties of the slate, ensure the continued demand for Westmorland Green roofing slates on landmark buildings throughout the world, including London’s Tower Bridge and St Pancras Station.

Marking 48 years of Service

It was with mixed emotions that Burlington Stone thanked Terry Armistead, Production Manager, for his dedication to the business over the past 48 years and to wish him well in his retirement at a special party on Friday 5th May 2017.  Having joined Burlington Stone at the age of 15, Terry has played a key role within the production facility at Kirkby-in-Furness.  The vast knowledge and experience he has gained over the past 48 years, along with his “can-do” attitude means he will be greatly missed by colleagues and customers alike.  Luckily, Terry has kindly agreed to continue to work for Burlington for a couple of days per week.
