Yorkstone & Portland Stone Masonry

English City Stone are able to offer you a variety of bespoke York and Portland stone products. None of our items are "off the shelf", so if you can provide us with measurements or drawings we can produce to your requirements.  Alternatively we can visit you at your home, offer advice and take any measurements ourselves.
