Cobbles and Setts

Cobbles and Setts

The original “Cobble” (Cob) was a rounded river-washed stone, which later gave way to the larger and more regular rectangular shaped ‘Hovis-style’ “‘Sett”’. The name (Cobble or Sett) is different depending on your location or perception, but the product is basically the same. They might come as small as 100mm square cubes or can be as large as 250mm x 200mm x 250mm, and they can be sandstone or granite… but one thing is certain, they are on their way back into fashion ! and there is no better ‘entrance statement’ than a beautifully cobbled driveway.

Whether for cobbled driveways and paths or larger civic areas; more and more architects and developers are being asked to use good old-fashioned street cobbles, instead of the other less robust and less visually pleasing methods of hard-pave construction.

It would be difficult, if not impossible to find another reclaimed stone product that looks as visually stunning and spectacular as a cobble driveway, patio or recreational area.

Cobbles and Setts are widely used to transform otherwise bland open expanses into visually pleasing works of art, and as well as being aesthetically superb they are incredibly robust for every form of foot or vehicle traffic; and when laid properly can be enjoyed by many generations to come.

Common from the 15 th Century onwards, the use of cobbles goes back to Roman times, and they are still evident in most of the historic towns and cities throughout the British Isles today.
