SIGA Heritage Reproduction Stone – Charnwood

Swithland slate roofs are an important feature of historic buildings in the East Midlands. With the closure of the two main pit quarries in the 1800s, an alternative roofing slate that replicates the unique and rustic beauty of the original Swithland natural slate was needed, and has been found in SIGA Heritage’s Charnwood.

Charnwood Reproduction Stone provides a genuine roofing slate alternative that is faithful to the original in terms of colour, texture and performance.
