Bargate stone is a highly durable form of sandstone. Medieval quarries can still be seen today in the hillsides surrounding Godalming. It is most commonly used in Godalming, Hascombe, Guildford and surrounding villages.
Having grown up in a local builders family in Godalming, Burton brothers have been building with Bargate stone for many years and this is where we truly specialise.
Being able to 'work the stone' is a skill that has been largely lost, but this is an area where we really stand out.
We actively source various qualities of Bargate stone, which we then cut and hand dress at our yard in East Hants, ready for building in modern or heritage projects. We also have the ability to use existing stone reclaimed on site to be cut and re-used in your project.
We are happy to purchase reclaimed Bargate stone, and depending on current stock levels, we can offer the stone on a supply only basis.
