As its name suggests the quarry is situated on Broughton Moor, mid-way between Broughton-in-Furness and Coniston and has been worked since the middle of the 19th Century. Broughton Moor is a mid green stone, often highlighted by contrasting white veins and beautiful tone changes that reflect its natural origins. Broughton Moor can be extracted in a variety of green tones to add a dark and light green contrast to surfaces yet purvey the beauty of its natural markings. Broughton Moor has been used for generations to provide walling, flooring, cladding, cills, worktops, and stairs. The richness of Broughton Moor makes it ideal for use in interior furniture and fittings, whether in traditional or modern design schemes.
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 finish in which the stone is split along its natural cleavage plane.
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..
