Cumbria-based stone engineers, Burlington - the name behind one of the world’s

Appropriately named after the quarry from which the stone is extracted, Brandy
Crag Silver, as its name suggests, is a silver grey natural stone that exhibits softer,

Commenting on Burlington
’s decision to promote this rich vein of stone, Sales &
Marketing Director, Nick Williams said: “We know from research that we have
taken undertaken with a number of leading architects and designers from across
the globe that the softer and more lighter shades that this particular stone delivers
are particularly vogue.
“Just as with our other natural stones and two limestones, Brandy Crag Silver is
without doubt one of the finest available in the world today and it is particularly
pleasing that it is available exclusively from a British producer. Brandy Crag Silver
has already attracted the attention of one of our partners in the USA, who have
already made a commitment to promote and stock the stone on our behalf. We are
equally confident that Brandy Crag Silver will attract universal appeal across both
the domestic and other overseas markets,” he added.
