Random Tumbled Building Stone – Callow Sandstone

Callow Red Sandstone is quarried from our Callow Quarry on the Herefordshire and Monmouthshire border. This is a traditional building and walling stone containing a stunning assortment of warm reds and auburn colours, with an occasional bluish-grey stone and veining. Stone from our Callow quarry is geologically classified as Old Devonian Red sandstone.


The random building stone produced from Callow Quarry is more block-like than some of our other building stone materials. This makes it easy and quick to build with, ideal for creating sturdy retaining walls for gardens, and substantial boundary walls for private and commercial properties.

This random tumbled building stone is identical to our Callow Red random building stone, other than that the former is put through a tumbling process to soften its faces and edges. It gives it a time-worn and naturally weathered appearance that makes it ideal for restoration and renovation work on existing buildings.

Callow red sandstone is also available as coursed building and walling stone with pitched face or tumbled finishes. Our vintage building stone combines coursed and random stone to offer an attractive traditional building stone to suit a lower budget, and also offers a tumbled alternative.

In Monmouthshire, our Callow Red sandstone is highly favoured for vernacular architecture where it helps to maintain the cultural integrity of local buildings.  As a cropped building stone it is also very popular in Cheshire, Somerset and Dorset because of its close visual match to traditional Cheshire Red sandstone.

One bulk bag of random building stone cropped to the standard 150mm (6 inch) bed width will provide enough material for 3 to 3.5 square metres of facing stone. A wastage allowance of 10% should always be calculated into your figures when ordering.
