St. Bees Split Face Walling
St. Bees Split Face Walling is a dark red sandstone of Permo Triassic age, which forms the sea cliffs of St. Bees Head near Whitehaven in Cumbria. It features a Split face which gives a textured finish to the stone face. This distinctive closed bedded and fine grained sandstone has proved to be a popular choice of building stone for centuries, both in the UK and USA.
In the UK Red St. Bees sandstone has been used from Scotland to the South of England. Its physical performance results in a stone which is extremely durable and versatile, for projects ranging from traditional walling styles through to large scale specification and conservation projects.
