Use of Burlington Stone within bespoke furniture is creating a piece of the Lake District in everyone's everyday environment. One such company has been using Burlington's Kirkby slate for a range of products.
Novocastrian is a collaboration between a designer, an architect and a metalworker who create bespoke furniture. Their craft is born of industry, of the manufacturing heritage of the North of England. The use of a carefully-curated range of Burlington’s Cumbrian slate permeates their work. The reinterpretation of even the most modest of materials, revealing their inherent beauty, is a key theme in their creative philosophy.
Novocastrian was awarded ‘Best New Designer 2015’ at the Northern Design Festival in Newcastle.
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.
