Portland limestone Coombefield shelly whitbed
Coombefield shelly whitbed is slightly open in texture, but does not have the openness of roach. It is extremely durable due to the high shell content and can be used in more exposed areas. We have sufficient extracted stock of this limestone for most projects.
It is worth noting that the durability provided by the shell reduces the use for heavily detailed or carved work. Instead it is very suitable for ashlar, paving and copings.
