Traditional Paving for Beautiful Barn Restoration
Barns & Yard of Hanley Hall comprises a Tudor barn and farm cottages which have been carefully restored to create a unique venue for weddings and celebrations. The landscape includes a lake and many period features and is in a beautiful location set against the Malvern Hills. The owners wanted to blend the traditional buildings with a more contemporary design that would appeal to their wedding guests. Externally it was important to create beautiful open spaces as a backdrop for photography and for easy outdoor entertaining. Our Traditional Paving was used for this Beautiful Barn Restoration
Choosing traditional paving
"We saw that Westminster Stone did a National Trust range and knew their paving would be excellent quality and aesthetically correct. We needed a large quantity so although we would have loved to use natural stone, we couldn’t afford to - however the handmade products have turned out to be even better as they are frostproof as well."
A range of contrasting products were ordered to provide different textures and a blend of colours to the external courtyards and terraces.
"We used a mix of Henslate flagstones, National Trust Petworth flagstones and Castle Blend flagstones. They are beautiful, hardwearing, robust and just look ‘right’".

Many of our Stonecast products have already been approved for use in listed buildings.
