Cumbrian Architectural Practice, Unwin Jones Partnership have just picked up the top prize for Best Eco / Sustainability Build at the Northern Design Awards 2013, which were presented on Friday 22nd November 2013 at the Monastery, Manchester, for their project, Brimstone at Langdale. This spectacular new “beyond-boutique” hotel in the Lake District is the only development of its kind in Cumbria.
Opening its doors in June 2013, the hotel has reinvented luxury stay. All elements of the project focussed upon creating the ultimate in luxury for every guests stay, and at the same time, meeting a brief to ensure that Brimstone is as sustainable and energy efficient as possible.
Therefore it was a natural decision to source, where possible, building materials locally. Hence all stone walling, roofing slates, slate copings and internal slate finishes were acquired from Burlington’s Elterwater quarry, less that half a mile from the site. The natural beauty of Burlington’s stone, which was laid down in the very near vicinity to the project over 450 million years ago, creates a show stopping venue which is totally in keeping with its natural surroundings.
The Elterwater stone is not only an aesthetically pleasing, but its superior technical characteristics ensures the longevity of the building for many generations to come.

You will lead and manage the production operations within budget to meet customer standards. You will ensure that safety, quality, cost and delivery requirements are met, implementing modern manufacturing principles and managing continuous improvement.

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.
