About Urban Stone

We use traditional stone carving methods and techniques to shape and create anything from rustic stone troughs to contemporary marble sculptures.

We have worked on many specialist projects for organisations such as RMBC, Pennine Heritage and Ian Simpson architects. The work involved can range from contemporary art to the restoration of listed buildings.
