  3. What is Yorkshire Stone?

Yorkshire is known for its stunning nature, charming villages, and slightly interesting accent – if you ask anyone but the locals. It is known as ‘God’s own country’ for a reason. But what you may not know is that it is also known for its own special type of stone – Yorkshire Stone.

But, what exactly is this stone that is named after our region in northern England? Let’s find out!

– What is Yorkshire Stone?

Yorkshire stone, or Yorkstone, is a special type of sandstone that can only be found in the region of Yorkshire. It is composed of a special blend of minerals and metal ores that make it unique from every other type of sandstone. It is a carboniferous stone that is known for its remarkably durable make as well as its natural beauty and ability to sculpt very well.

Yorkshire Stone is perfect for creating ornamental carvings, sculptures, artwork, walkways, pathways, and more. It isn’t overly porous, but is just enough so to allow for a wide range of natural coloration. These special properties are why Yorkshire Stone has been mined and used in the region since the medieval times.

It remains today one of the most sought-after materials for property owners and sculptors. Its unique versatility makes it truly one of a kind, and one of the many prides of Yorkshire.
