Limestone Hearth

Exciting Progress Alert!

Cut to size limestone hearth for home destroyed by flood.

Following on from the news we shared last week about collecting new material for limestone and granite hearths we have a progress report for you!

One of those slabs has now been transformed into a beautiful cut to size limestone hearth for a customer near us in the village of Greatford, South Lincolnshire.  In January this year, the residents of Greatford suffered dreadfully at the hands of storm Henk when widespread flooding devastated many of their homes.

Our new limestone slab was cut to our customer’s exacting size and transformed into a beautiful new fireside hearth in our workshop here at Manthorpe.  As you can see if you look carefully at the pictures below, this hearth has been created from two separate pieces – a longer front and a smaller back piece.  We will always generally recommend this to prevent thermal cracking of the slab.  Made with care and precision, we know it will bring warmth and elegance to their living space and serve as a sturdy and stylish centrepiece for many years to come.
