Paternoster Square and Column

March 2018

Paternoster Square and Column
Recognised as one of the City of London’s most outstanding and prestigious landmarks.

Located in Paternoster Square in London, St Martin’s Court was a £5m project. Overall the large site was created to provide 130,000 sq ft for a mixture of office and retail spaces.

Portland Stone Firms provided its iconic Portland limestone for the cladding of 4 buildings. Over 1,230 m3 of limestone was needed to clad the Mason’s Yard building alone.

This project demonstrates the ability of our mine and quarries to produce the quantities of stone needed by large building projects.
Colonnade

The circular column walk through used our turned natural Portland stone which was capable of producing the large sizes required for the project. Each turned piece displays the typical fossil shelling of Portland that is expected.
The Column

We provided and worked the stone for Paternoster Square Column. This is now recognised as one of the City of London’s most outstanding and prestigious landmarks

Heritage of Portland Stone Firms

March 2015

The recent Natural Stone Awards 2014 held in London goes to show that our Companies heritage is still celebrated throughout the United Kingdom.

Quarrying and craftsmanship of our natural stone since St Paul’s Cathedral has continued to this day, with over 300 years of excellence in masonry.

Portland Stone Firms are delighted to continually produce iconic London buildings that enrich our surroundings with a world class British stone.

Of note in the vast array of projects across the decades are the prestigious Whitehall Cenotaph to Sixty Holborn Viaduct or the distinctive headstones and commemorative memorials for the Common Wealth War Graves Commission following WW1.

The majority of London’s natural Portland stone developments have come from our privately owned quarries or modern factories.
