Priory riven Yorkstone or ‘Yorkshire stone’ is a popular choice due to the characteristic buff yellow Yorkstone colouring. The stone when quarried is a light buff yellow with occasional brown and it tends to darken to a warm richer colour as it ages.
The term riven refers to the way the solid blocks of stone are split or ‘riven’ apart, to leave the natural face texture to the slabs. Quarried locally from a Yorkshire quarry, we produce Yorkshire stone paving slabs in much the same way as historically. We utilise modern methods and equipment where necessary to ensure a cost effective, high quality product.
Priory riven paving is a natural stone of high grade has been proven durable well in excess of 100 years.
