With over 400 years of history from the Spanish Armada to the Falkland’s Crisis, the Historic Chatham Dockyards multi million pound investment including a new world class visitor centre is completed by using Belgian Blue limestone paving to welcome all visitors.

Trans-European Stone supplied in total over 2,300 m2 of Belgian Blue limestone paving, a majority in 200mm widths with random lengths of between 300-600mm and the remaining quarter in 150x150x 50mm squares, tumbled to give a weathered and antique finish. 16m2 of tactile flags 400x400x50mm with a blister finish were used to complete the external landscaping on this impressive project.

We decided to use Belgian Blue limestone for the external landscaping on this project due to its colour and range of textures and finishes. Its lasting durability will continue to welcome visitors for many, many years
