At this year’s Holker Garden Festival from 31st May – 2nd June, Burlington Stone were delighted to not only win “Large Gold” for their show garden “Metamorphosis” but they also won Best Festival Garden for the first time.
The garden represented the change achieved with natural stone, but also how individuals's styles change. The large number of visitors to the Festival found they were able to envisage all or elements of the Burlington show garden within their own garden and the stone and planting generated a lot of interest.
Building on the success achieved at the Chelsea Flower Show a couple of weeks previously, Burlington Stone will continue to develop their Landscaping proposition and further details will be available through the website.
Now Burlington Stone can start planning next year’s garden to retain the title of “Best Festival Garden”.

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.
