BOB'S DAILY DIARY IE THROUGH MATURIE YEARS
It must be 20 years or so when a Tiler friend of mine was tilling a house I had moved into In Leeds and I mentioned that I would like a new fireplace in the lounge. he said if I could wait a couple of weeks there was a sale of Flagstones locally. He arrived not long after with this Yorkshire stone piece about 3ft.x 4ft. and split it down the middle. it revealed the most beautiful different shades. After he finished it he put a walnut mantel piece at the top and same as a hearth. it looked fabulous .
I would think there is a high demand for old stone slabs. It is happening down here in Gloucester/ Somerset where old dry stone walling is being stolen.
