Slate Paving

Posted On 12/01/2020
We supply a huge range of slate paving throughout Cornwall.

And on this project at Pentire in Newquay, our customer asked us to supply & install slate paving on the terrace’s they’d constructed.

A building contractor built and rendered the walls before we started on site.
