Baycliff Lord

The Baycliff quarry is situated on the outskirts of the historic market town of Ulverston and was formed in the Carboniferous period over 250 million years ago. Baycliff is one of the hardest and most durable limestones available for use in construction. Baycliff Lord is an oatmeal coloured limestone with dark cream markings, well suited for specification in attractive paving and flooring schemes, and for use in landscaping designs.

GRITBLASTED:

A high-pressure airline projects coarse-grained abrasives, giving a regular non slip finish.

FLAME TEXTURED:

Heat and water combine to achieve a regular textured finish.

HONED:

A smooth finish with a slight sheen, produced by using a polishing head.

SPOT TEXTURED:

The top surfaces of sawn slabs are pneumatically tooled to produce a pitted surface.

SANDED:

The top surfaces of sawn slabs are coarsely diamond sanded to produce a non slip finish.

LINE TEXTURED:

The top surfaces of sawn slabs are pneumatically tooled to produce a grooved surface.

RIVEN CLEFT:

A finish in which the stone is split along its natural cleavage plane.

A similar finish to honed but with greater slip-resistance.

The colours shown in this range sample of swatches are indicative only and would encompass the colour variations available from our standard range of products. Only for any bespoke requirements, customers can determine their specific needs for the project and product choices can be made after reference to detailed samples. The uniqueness of Burlington natural stone means colour tone and markings can change as a consequence of its extraction from different stone seams and the finish carried out to its surface.
