Purbeck Walling and Dressing - Lewis Quarries Dorset

Purbeck stone looks great wherever it is used but in its natural habitat in Dorset it really comes into its own. Here it has been used in a contemporary house design as well as for boundary walling with traditional cock and hens coping.  

The darker bluey/grey Purbeck complements the window frames and paler beige tones have been used for window arches, quoins, keystones and cills.
