Slate hearth barrow in furness cumbria

Our Fireplaces and Hearths are made from the finest stone, often locally sourced and sometimes reclaimed.

Each hearth is cut to your required size (we can either call in and measure it for you at no extra cost if you’re local to Barrow or Ulverston etc) or call us and we’ll help you take your own measurements if you need it delivering. 

We can custom make a complete fireplace and hearth from your own design.

We do have a range of our own designs that can be made to your required size or we can create a bespoke design for you specially made to fit in with your room style and decor. If you already have something in mind, just tell us – even if it’s just a rough sketch!

“From start to finish, we will help you make the right decision for that perfect fireplace & hearth”

All our fireplaces and hearths are made from natural stone. Although we regularly use Slate, Marble, Granite, Limestone or Sandstone, we can source and supply just about any stone for you.

Got a Question?

We often get common questions about our slate hearths,
so here are a few common Q&A that may help….

Q.I have a gas or electric fire, will a slate hearth be suitable?
A. Yes, slate is an ideal product to sit your fire on and will look great with any fire.

Q. I’m having a large Wood /Coal / Multi Fuel burner installed, would a slate hearth be suitable and strong enough for this?
A. Yes, the thickness of slate we use is 30mm or 40mm. This will give a very strong, sturdy and safe base for your burner to stand on.

Q. I’m tempted to buy a whole slate slab and cut it my self, is this easy to do?
A. Good question! If you’re handy with heavy cutting tools and confident enough to attempt to cut out a shape to fit in your fireplace, then yes you can cut your own.

Q. Do I need to have my slate hearth sealed?
A. No. This is a matter of personal preference. Sealing a slate hearth will not only help prevent the stone from staining if anything is spilled on it, but it also enhances the natural tones and colours. We can seal your hearth for you or there are various products on the market that you can get and seal it yourself. Worth doing a little research for your own peace of mind first.

Q What’s the difference in Riven and Honed slate?
A. Riven is the “natural” surface of slate and Honed is when the surface has been smoothed out by machine to give a very smooth and satin surface.

  • Headstones

  • Grave markers
  • Kitchen worktops
  • Bathroom vanity shelves
