Chicksgrove Quarry Ltd is the only source of Chilmark Stone, a cream coloured Limestone nationally renowned as one of the country’s finest building stones.
Chicksgrove Quarry Ltd has been a family run business since 1986. We operate a quarry at Chicksgrove and are currently in the process of re-opening the only other source of Chilmark Stone – Chilmark Mine. We also hope to be able to offer Hurdcott Greensand Stone at some point in the future.
Chilmark Stone is an exception quality Limestone known for its durability and strength, suitable for a range of uses such as walling stone, fine masonry stone and paving. It is used extensively throughout the South of England in the building and restoration industries.
We have supplied thousands of tonnes of Chilmark Stone for the ongoing restoration of Salisbury Cathedral. Other recent projects include the high profile restoration of Westminster Abbey Chapter House and the current restoration programme at Rochester Cathedral.
Chilmark stone is an approved match for Kentish Ragstone, Reigate Stone, Malmstone & Clunch.
We are currently supplying the restoration of Hampton Court Palace where Chilmark Stone is being use to replace Reigate Stone due to its similar texture and appearance but improved durability.
