Short Story

About Horsham Stone

Horsham Stone is a finely-grained, compact, calcareous sandstone. Geologically, it was deposited as sandbanks and river sediments in a large river that flowed across Sussex over 130 million years ago.

Dinosaurs once roamed across the Land of Sussex in England. During this Triassic/Cretaceous time, many bones, footprints and skeletons have been found in the quarries and sand pits near and around Horsham.

HorshamStone is famous for its ripple marks
Each piece is unique and unlike no other stone on Earth. This happened because the stone was once part of the sandstone beds. Over the centuries these ripples have been valued by builders for there anti slip properties.

The Roman Empire during the invasion/rule of England
Romans where the first to introduce Horsham Stone to the masses around 2,000 years ago as a building material. The ability to split Horsham Stone into thin roofing slates has been highly valued and ever since it has not stopped being used.

Large numbers of Churches, Castles and Medieval/Tudor buildings seen across Sussex, Kent and afar, use Horsham Stone roofing slates. Over time it also weathers into a range of beautiful yellows and browns, giving charm and unique character to a building.
