Portland Stone

Portland Stone is a very popular limestone and has been used on a high number of prestigious buildings in the UK and abroad.

A wide range of Portland Stone is available in the market: from tightly grained stone to very open textured and shelly stone.

Portland Stones have excellent weathering properties and can be used in most projects.

From its history, Hanson Bath & Portland Stone has a unique experience on selecting the best Portland Stone and working Portland Stone. Over the years, we have developed strong relationships with Portland suppliers.
