History of Jowett Stone
Jowett Stone has a proud history of providing first class reclaimed stone. You can rest assured that we will exceed your high standards – we will get it right. One of our Directors Tom, comes from a long line of quarrymen and his great grandfather, Ernest Jowett, owned Bank Top Quarry at Bingley.
Tom has over 10 years’ experience in the stone industry and has demolished some of the county’s great lost houses, salvaging some of their increasingly rare and beautiful architecture to offer at our main reclamation yard.
Our stone yard in Halifax is open to both the public and trade. You will find York Stone Paving, Indian Paving, all types of walling stone, heads and cills, copings and some fine pieces of architectural salvage. Our stone dressers are on hand to help match any stone you need for your current project and our team has over 200 years’ combined experience.
Who We Are and What We Do
Jowett Stone is a family run specialist business. We are experts in supplying the best quality stone for extensions or conversions of old, period or listed buildings. We specialise in the reclamation salvaging of York Stone buildings.
We constantly source materials through demolishing sites of valuable stone buildings. We work with builders, ground works companies, architects, landscape gardeners, property developers, large utility companies, museums and garden centres, along with local authorities and their planning departments throughout the UK and overseas.
We have experienced stone dressers and masons and can match all stone.
We have a large supply of good quality stock all year round, and can fulfil orders both small and large. Our advice is to call us on 01422 247300 to ascertain our stock levels at any given time. We carry out our own demolition services, bringing the stone back to our sorting yards and ensuring endless product range. We dress the stone and resell it and can provide any haulage solutions to any part of the world.
We are proud to operate from Yorkshire. The best quality stone available in the country is available here and even the oldest buildings in London have stone supplied from our local area. We pride ourselves in being able to provide the perfect match hundreds of years after the original installation.
‘We run a nationwide building company and use Jowett Stone for most natural stone products. They always provide a very good stone match to blend in with traditional buildings. They deliver on time and the stone is consistently good quality. Their stone yard staff, drivers and office staff are all extremely helpful.
