Stone Cladding Slips – White Lias Rubble
Our White Lias rubble stone is quarried in Somerset. It is a Jurassic / Triassic limestone with exceptional strength and durability. With its cropped face, light colouring and natural density, White Lias limestone combines the appeal of real stone with a contemporary aesthetic.
Country of origin: United Kingdom
Using precision-cutting equipment we saw the front face from solid rubble stone to create a lightweight cladding slip approx 15-25mm thick. The slips can be fixed directly to walls like a heavy tile, but being irregular in shape with random heights and lengths they create the appearance of a true solid stone wall.
Easy to apply, space-saving and highly cost-effective, our White Lias Rubble cladding creates a real stone finish in a fraction of the time and cost of a conventionally-build stone wall.
The colouring of White Lias is predominantly cream with brown and white highlights. It is strongly redolent of West Country vernacular architecture, and is equally popular for house-building and landscaping.
All our natural stone slips are suitable for cladding internal and external walls on commercial and residential building and landscaping projects, for both professional use and DIY.
L-shaped corners create the appearance of ‘full-thickness’ solid stone walling, but being so slim in format means they are also ideal for new builds where space is at a premium.
We are able to produce stone slips across our full range of natural stone products, including Random, Vintage, Coursed, and Tumbled cropped walling stone.
Our stone slips have a sawn back and cropped front, and are cut to a thickness of 15-25mm. The heights and lengths are naturally random, giving the appearance of a conventionally-built natural stone wall. You might also hear the slips referred to as fascias or thins.
In comparison, our traditional random building stone is cropped to a 100mm–150mm (4 -6 inch) bed width as standard, making it a larger and heavier stone.
We stack our natural stone cladding slips into crates containing 20m2 per crate. A full crate will weigh approx. one tonne.
Comparing this to traditional building stone – where a one tonne bag of 4-6in facing stone will cover 3-3.5m2 of walling – our natural stone cladding slips offer a considerable saving on haulage, as well as space on site.
We also have a range of paving, cobblestones, lintels and cills to complement all of our natural stone cladding slips. These are sourced from responsible suppliers throughout the world, to provide our customers with a wider choice of colour, finish and prices.

For external landscaping we provide a range of rocks and stones from all of our quarries, with a choice of BMQ grey-green sandstone, Callow red sandstone, and Cornish silver-grey granite. These are available in various sizes from small rockery stones to 12 tonne boulders.
Whilst we have done our utmost to ensure the stone and colours displayed on our website are accurate, they are to be used as a guide only. Because stone is a natural product, texture and colour will vary from piece to piece. As we work through the quarry, seams will yield slightly different coloured and shaped stones.
The building technique, quantity, colour and type of mortar used will all impact on the look of the finished product. Please bear this in mind when ordering stone products. For larger projects or any projects where a specific look is required, we recommend that test panels are built.
