Natural Stone Slabs for Worktops, Tiles & More

This beautiful limestone is from the Once-a-week Quarry, situated between the villages of Monyash and Sheldon, within the Peak District National Park. This quarry got its name in the early part of the last century, as it was the only quarry that paid its workers weekly, when other quarries paid staff fortnightly.

We recently secured a new long term lease from the Chatsworth Estate and planning permission for a new working area, so the stone is available again in good quantities. To minimise environmental issues and damage to the stone, the stone is won by hand using traditional ‘plugs’ and ‘feathers’.

A polished section of limestone represents a portrait of ancient geological history, the fossils being amongst the earliest life forms on our wonderful planet. When you use our stone in your home, your friends and family will be fascinated as they admire the beautiful fossils and imagine life on earth during the carboniferous period some 355 million years ago.

At Natural Stone Sales Ltd, we take immense pride in providing the highest quality building stone and materials to our clients for all their commercial or domestic projects. Our limestone quarry produces a vast variety of polished, textured or sawn natural stone slabs. From durable natural stone slabs and vanity tops to beautiful limestone floor tiles and decorative fire surrounds, we have the products you need.

“Whilst renovating a cottage in Ashford in the Water and wanting local materials, we chanced upon Natural Stone Sales in Rowsley and were shown Mandale fossil limestone, which we decided we wanted for our kitchen worktops. The service from Richard and his staff were excellent from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble for them. The finished kitchen looks fantastic and the worktops are so beautiful and unique – each time you look you see something different.

Thank you so much for all of your hard work”
