The Malvern hills span the three counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire and were home to the famous Malvern Stone which dates back to the pre-Cambrian period.
At one point there were twelve quarries working to supply the huge demand for this wonderful stone but, unfortunately, this left the area badly scarred.
After much local protest, The Malverns were subsequently declared an Area of Outstanding Beauty after the Second World War and excavations all but stopped, with the last quarry finally shutting down in 1977.
Being both very difficult and extremely uneconomic to recycle, Malvern Stone has become something of a holy grail for architects looking to reproduce the distinctive and authentic look of this superb natural stone. As a global company, we have used our resources to locate what we believe to be a natural stone that is virtually indistinguishable from Malvern Stone. This has already attracted considerable interest and numerous delighted clients, both in the UK for classic traditional look and in the USA to reproduce the popular Californian look of the 60s and 70s.
