Traditional stone has been carving stone for the restoration industry since its foundation in 1985.

It takes great pride in the quality of the carvings it produces and intends on continuing its production of high quality ‘Banker work’ and carving via the instruction and experience it provides for young stonemasons who demonstrate the attitude and talent required to undertake this most prestigious aspect of our craft.
