Applications

Cloburn Quarry may date back more than 100 years, but its beautiful red granite has never been more popular with a wide variety of applications.

In its most common form, Cloburn Red is used for domestic landscaping. It has become a hallmark of gardens and driveways across the UK and beyond with its decorative aggregates proving ideal for walkways, pathways and driveways, as well as for rockery stones. The texture of the granite is soft enough to feel good under foot, while its real strength lies in its durability with customers knowing that once they have put Cloburn Quarry granite in place they won’t have to worry about the condition of their driveways for the rest of their lifetime.

However, commercial landscaping is also on the increase with Cloburn’s gravel, pebbles and stone chippings now employed in car parks, golf courses and for sports surfaces around the world. The likes of Gleneagles and Archerfield are among the most famous golf courses already adorned with the product for their walkways; while Cloburn red granite cresta has become a hallmark of tennis courts, football pitches and running tracks. Of course the gravel also retains its original use – which is as railway ballast across many UK tracks. With Cloburn also offering a number of construction materials and drainage solutions, it’s a real problem solver for any commercial landscaping project.  

Indeed Cloburn Red can also be put to use on a much smaller scale with many hobbyists using the slate chippings for a variety of purposes. It is popular in fish tanks and aquariums, where it can provide a healthy environment for a number of species; and is also commonly used as track ballast for model railways to give the replicas an authentic feel.

However you plan to use Cloburn Quarry’s materials you can rest assured you’re getting the highest quality at the most cost effective price.
