Glee 2011 saw the launch of the National Trust Landscape Collection – a collaboration between the National Trust and established reproduction paving company Westminster Stone.
The Collection’s stand with individual ‘garden’ settings, was the Winner of the prestigious Garden Design Award.
Westminster Stone who are well renowned for the quality and range of their exterior and interior paving and flooring products attracted the attention of The National Trust who sought a wholly British company to produce a range of authentic paving and landscaping products inspired by National Trust properties and gardens throughout the country. The four unique ranges of flagstones, tiles, fine aggregates and garden artefacts have been meticulously reproduced from historic originals. This is the most significant British range of paving and decorative stone chippings to be presented to the market for several years and offers garden designers and landscapers a blue chip product to offer their clients.
The Cotswold Manor range takes its inspiration from the famous gardens at Hidcote and Snowshill reflecting the warm mellow tones of traditional Cotswold buildings. Comprising Hidcote flagstones, Snowshill shingle, and an attractive trough.
The Roman Villa range inspired by Romano-British mosaics and paving throughout National Trust sites, captures the essence of the Mediterranean landscape. Chedworth Tiles based on antique terracotta originals are available in burnt terracotta and ash black and are complemented by Chedworth Triangles, edgings and eco-friendly crushed tile and brick chippings.
Inspired by the grandeur and formality of the nation’s finest stately homes, the Country House range comprises Petworth flagstones, Tatton Courtyard Cobbles, distinctive Kerbstones and Tatton Shingle .
Designed to reflect the traditions of the wonderful working gardens found at National Trust properties, the Kitchen Garden range includes Barrington flagstone reminiscent of those found at Barrington Court in Somerset, beautiful brick pavers, Barrington Shingle and an authentically moulded Mill Stone.
Growing interest in undertaking restoration projects at home and the huge surge in creating ‘kitchen gardens’, means the Collection is perfect for those interested in restoration/conservation or own a period property. Equally stunning in a contemporary setting these beautiful new products are for anyone who wants a slice of history in their backyard.
