I finished knocking down a derelict outbuilding today and in the process was left with the above pile of stone. It does look rather useless I know but it is in fact a valuable resource for future renovation as the red sandstone is such an easily worked stone. Most (all?) quarries supplying my area have long since ceased operating so locating a matching sandstone is an irksome task. A quarry in Cumbria (St.Bees) is going to supply my need for new paving and cladding but the above pile will come in very handy when I finish on the main house and move on to the other cottages....whenever that may be!
