Portland Stone Steps
Portland Stone is a Jurassic period limestone quarried on the Isle of Portland in Dorset. It is a highly characteristic stone, white-grey in colour with varying levels of fossil content depending on the bed from which it has been quarried.
Suitability For Steps
Natural features within the stone should be expected as a matter of course. They include the fossilised remains of sea creatures and calcified water lines, both of which add structural integrity and character to the stone. It is possible to select relatively featureless stones, but this is regarded as a premium service and must be requested.
