The Kirkby quarry is located on Kirkby Moor, just above the village of Kirkby-in-Furness and has been operated for well over 400 years. Kirkby Stone is an even blue grey colour throughout. Kirkby Stone has been used for generations to provide walling, flooring, roof coverings, cills and copings. Architects and designers around the world have long taken advantage of its natural beauty, durability and adaptability to create classic weather resistant details and surface finishes. Kirkby Stone is sedimentary in nature and was formed in the Silurian period, some 300-350 million years ago.
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.
