Pitch Faced Walling

Pitch faced walling stone is made from Kentish Ragstone blocks which are cut into dimensional slabs via a large primary saw, then into precise dimensions and hand dressed to suit specific project requirements.

Sawn and dressed pitched face stone combines the beauty of natural stone with easy laying and consistent joint widths to match and bond with other construction materials if required.

The degree of pitch on the face of the stone walling blocks varies greatly from almost flat to a very distinctive protruding pitch. This type of building stone also comes in a wide range of sizes to suit course height and modern building requirements.

In addition to Kentish Ragstone’s natural durability, pitch faced stone also benefits from a beautiful weathered appearance.

This combination makes it perfect for new build and historic houses that are designed to have a traditional period feel.

Random rubble walling

Random Rubble Walling, also called rubblework, is the use of undressed, rough stone, generally in the construction of walls. Dry-stone random rubble walls, for which rough stones are piled up without mortar, is the most basic form. An intermediate method is polygonal rubble walling, for which stones are split faced and roughly dressed to suit a specific pattern or design.

Galleted Random Rubble Walling features stones of varying sizes and joint widths with small fillets or gallets bedded into the mortar between the stones.

Random Rubble stonework bound with mortar was often used historically as an infilling between dressed wall faces as an inner ‘hearting’ or core to the external wall faces.

Many medieval cathedrals, ecclesiastical and historic properties were built in this manner.

Landscape Stone

Add stylish and practical touches to your outdoor space with Kentish Ragstone. The possibilities are endless for
external paths, patios, steps, fire pits, water features and general landscaping requirements.

Terraced Kentish Ragstone steps can create a strong focal point and bring character to your garden. Pavers take up most of the
space where unwanted weeds and grass might grow, creating a striking pattern, and clear direction and division within your
garden.

Kentish Ragstone chippings with its earthy texture and its crunchy sound underfoot are the reasons why this oldest of hardscapes
will always be perceived as the softest of paving materials.

Hefty Kentish Ragstone boulders help anchor the hillsides and undulating features within your garden, forming the perfect spot
for displaying plants.

Kentish Ragstone is ideal for water features, such as a rocky bank, stepping stones and broad flagstones near the water’s edge. Even a few small boulders or monoliths strategically positioned next to a path or perimeter fence can make a striking design statement.
