Burlington’s Broughton Moor stone wowed the press and celebrities at yesterday’s preview day at Chelsea Flower Show 2013. Supplying stone to the garden designer, Jamie Dunstan, Jamie was able to create “As Nature Intended” along the Main Avenue at the prestigious annual flower show and achieve a superb “Silver Gilt” Award.
With the inclusion of Broughton Moor paving in a waterjet finish, a spectacular piece of natural Broughton Moor stone and Burlington’s Westmorland Green cropped walling, visitors to the 5 day long show will be given the chance to see how the use of sustainable products and creative planting, can show the versatility of modern garden design and how it can succinctly harmonise with properties of the past.
For those not attending the show, Burlington Stone were mentioned on Monday 20th May’s BBC1 Chelsea Flower Show coverage, which is now available on i-Player. Link below.
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.
It is with delight that Burlington Stone’s Westmorland Green flamed paving has won the Landscaping Category at this year’s Natural Stone Awards 2016. Working together with Hardscape, based in Bolton, Burlington Stone supplied their Green natural stone for an integral part of the refurbishment of the Deansgate – Castlefield Metro Station project in Manchester.
Her Majesty The Queen has officially opened a new £15m National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art in Newmarket, where many of her own horses are trained and stabled.
Ten years of planning has gone into the new centre, which includes Burlington Stone’s Westmorland Green flamed paving in the internal and external walkways.
