The Baycliff quarry is situated on the outskirts of the historic market town of Ulverston and was formed in the Carboniferous period over 250 million years ago. Baycliff is one of the hardest and most durable limestones available for use in construction. Baycliff Caulfeild is a buff coloured limestone with light coffee mottling which is available in honed and flamed finishes. Baycliff limestone is a versatile material, used by architects and designers to create distinctive, durable floors and interior fittings of great character.
A smooth finish with a slight sheen. This can be applied to both faces and edges of the stone and can be applied to complex shapes and sloping faces.
A textured finish applied with a high pressure oxygen-propane lance. This can only be applied to a flat face and not available on edges,
complex shapes or sloping faces. If finished edges are required we would offer Honed, Sanded, Gritblasted or for a rougher more natural alternative we would offer a Plucked edge.
A high-pressure airline projects coarse-grained abrasives, giving a regular non slip finish.
A smooth high gloss finish, produced by using a polishing head. For limestone only.
The top surfaces of sawn slabs are coarsely diamond sanded to produce a non slip finish.
The top surfaces of sawn slabs are pneumatically tooled to produce a grooved or pitted surface..
