This naturally beautiful British slate has outstanding technical characteristics and was formed during the Ordovician period some 450 million years ago in the North West peninsular of Wales.
Adorning the roofs, floors and walls of iconic and heritage projects throughout the UK and the world, Welsh Slate brings a wealth of knowledge and experience within the stone industry.
The Cwt-y-Bugail riven slate is a dark blue slate, which is quarried at the Cwt-y-Bugail quarry, close to Blaenau Ffestiniog in North Wales. This quarry has been operated since the mid 19th Century and is the highest operating industrial site in the UK. During World War II, many of Britain's most valuable paintings and national treasures were stored deep inside the slate caverns for safe keeping!
Welsh Slate is committed to conducting its business in an environmentally responsible manner by maximising the environmental benefits, minimising the environmental impact and promoting sustainable development within its operations and services. They are certified to ISO 14001 Environmental accreditation and ISO 9001.
The slate is sensitively extracted from the quarries, and using skills passed down through the generations and the use of cutting-edge technology, the slate is transformed into beautiful luxurious and signature products.
