Burlington Stone is one of the last slate mining firms in the UK. Their experienced British craftsmen have been mining, ‘docking’, ‘dressing’ and ‘riving’ slate for over 175 years. Burlington is still owned by the descendants of the founder, William Cavendish, who started quarrying in 1843. Based in Kirkby-in-Furness, Cumbria, they mine traditional slate, formed over 450 million years ago.
Each slate board is distinctive; as is each quarry they operate. The slate cheeseboards come from the Kirkby Blue/Grey Mine. The main slate worktop found in The Courtyard Dairy’s shop is from another quarry of theirs, Elterwater.
