New products from Westminster Stone

Shropshire's Westminster Stone are about to launch some very impressive new products and company director John Clifford has granted us an exclusive sneak preview of what will be available. John's hoping that their amended catalogue will be out any day now (call them for a copy if you can't find it at your local stockist), and he's planning to have the all-new catalogue ready for late summer. He tells me that they are building the 'sets' and getting them photographed as I type!

Lancashire Millstone Circle
First up is this stunningly attractive circle feature, constucted using the popular Lancashire Millstone flags with a radial squaring off kit. I'm not sure of the overall dimensions, but I can see this working really well as a courtyard terrace or patio.

Next: new additions to the Provence range of terracotta-effect pavings.

John says,

"The Old Provence Tile Circle with squaring off kit is the first reproduction Terracotta circle on the market, I believe. The squaring off kit allows it to fit in with the large 420 x 420mm squares, or with the six size random tile - I believe that we are the only company to offer a random tile!"

The first image shows the circle feature with a half-ring outer circle, while the second shot shows the circle complete with the squaring-off kit.

John continues,

"The other new product is a Circle with Squaring-off kit in our Old Castle range, smaller element circle, available in 3 colour ways.

Also, we're now offering a squaring-off kit for our Classic Rotarea circle features. The 3.6m diameter circle can now be squared off to almost 4 metres. There is also a unique piece that allows the squaring-off kit to be fitted without straight lines, enabling the squaring-off kit to be laid into a totally random area. I'll send images of these items as soon as I can. Our Large Classic Rotarea that extends to 6.3m diameter (larger than anyone else's!!) is now available in all 4 flagstone finishes/colours.

You might like to know that we have introduced a 10 size, 10 square metre random pack this year. It's proving very popular with merchants who have a space problem, and with the contractors and clients looking for a 'patio-in-a-box' solution.

And finally, I musn't forget to mention our Classic Travertine, pictured below."

spacer travertine I look forward to seeing the updated brochure, and to getting to see these flags laid to "real job".

Speaking for myself, I think the Lancashire Mill Circle is a certain winner. The Lancashire range has always been a class product, one of the top three riven reproductions in the country, in my not so humble opinion, and this latest addition is bound to raise eyebrows, not just those of the clients and the contractors, but a number of the other wet-cast manufacturers in this market.

Now: who can I persuade to have this laid in their garden?


Opposite: Classic Travertine
