http://stonesupplies.co.ukSuppliers of many different types of stone and aggregates. Can usually source most types of stone.
Before any project I wil normally visit the quarries to see what the stone is like. Being a natural product it can vary from month to month, depending on the consistency of the bed from which it is being dug.
Other sources include reclamation yards - www.bensreckyard.co.uk at Frampton Cotterall is worth a visit particularly for Hambrook Stone ( a red sandstone associated with the Bristol coalfield).
