Surrey flint

Published: 16/09/2017

Much of our work is based around the villages and towns of the South Downs and Sussex weald, although we also travel further afield, embarking in stone and flint projects in counties such as Surrey and Kent and beyond.

Surrey has large pockets of flint and stone.

Throughout the centuries craftsmen have used these materials creating a number of unique flint and stone styles. Often a single flint specialist or stonemason will have worked in a very localised area, having lacked the capacity to transport material or labour long distances.

It was this isolation that nourished the particular idiosyncrasies or whims of the local craftsmen and allowed them to develop distinctive flint and stone styles.
