Bath stone used for this Rural Office in Somerset
Pinckney Green supplied all the architectural stonework for this stone office building at a rural business centre near Bath in Somerset. The project involved providing new coping stones for the gable ends plus door and window surrounds in local Bath stone. The owner chose Bath stone to reflect the Purbeck walling of the office block and because it’s an attractive but weather-proof material with great durability.
Bath Stone Portico, Somerset.
Pinckney Green Stoneworks recently built a Bath stone portico for a period farmhouse in mid-Somerset which is attached to a small chapel. Our client wanted to create a grand entrance for their front door and loved the colour of Bath stone so we used Bath stone block which was in keeping with the character of their property.
The project involved first removing a low stone garden wall and laying foundations before building the portico and installing oak framed windows and an oak-clad ceiling.
Our masons carved a stunning stone door surround which adds real flair to the entrance while the portico’s arched roof reflects the shape of the dormer window in the roof directly above aswell as the existing kitchen porch.
We were also asked by our client to commission a bespoke oak front door which was completed with stunning wrought iron furnishings. The portico interior also featured a beautiful wrought iron pendant light and a blue lias stone floor.
The finished portico makes a delightful and polished entrance to the front of the house.
Carved Door Pediment
This highly decorative piece of carving adds dramatic detail to this stone door surround, demanding attention as people walk below it. The stonework design shows regal-looking shields on draped fabric with small wreaths in either corner.

Local Bath stone used for this striking Farmhouse Extension.
Originally built in the 1600’s, this striking stone farmhouse in Gloucestershire has been regularly reinvented to suit different eras. The farmhouse underwent a major renovation in the Georgian period with several further alterations made in the 1800’s and 1900’s. The property has most recently had a substantial extension added in 2011.
Pinckney Green Stoneworks, a sister company to Pinckney Green Fireplaces, supplied all the architectural stone work for the new extension in local Bath stone. We worked closely with the client to ensure all stone details were in keeping with the Georgian style of the older parts of the house and the stone features we provided included the gable end, parapet, quoins, window frames and base blocks.
This large 1940’s villa in West Sussex was originally designed with a flat frontage but the property’s latest owner was keen to add a stone portico to the front entrance in 2010.
Our stonemason chose a simple design for the portico to suit a 20th Century house and carved it from local Bath stone. The elegant design has a robust and solid appearance but its plain bold lines allow the portico to blend in smoothly with the rest of the property. The new portico adds greatly to the character and grandeur of this modern house

Bath stone fireplace in a Georgian Farmhouse, Dorset.
Pinckney Green Stoneworks recently installed three Bath stone fireplaces into a beautiful five bedroom Georgian farmhouse near Sherborne in Dorset. The installation was part of a major refurbishment undertaken by the owners during 2011/12. The listed property dates from c. 1750 and has historically been used as a farmhouse since early Georgian times. The three new Bath stone fireplaces were all made from Bath limestone and the two designs chosen were the Hampton fireplace for both the dining room and snug room and a Bolection fireplace for the main sitting room extension. While the whole project was designed and managed by the property owners they took guidance on period style from the local conservation officer because of its listed property status. The two Hampton fireplaces were selected by the conservation officer because of the simple but formal design, with an elegant square opening which was fashionable in the early Georgian period. In addition, the owners chose a Bolection fireplace design which has a grander and more decorative appearance for their newly built, sitting room extension.
“The three fireplaces look stunning, great craftsmanship throughout. Many thanks for the ‘easy to deal with’ and professional attitude you brought with you – much appreciated” Lizzy Fenwick

“We were asked to create and install two Bath limestone fireplaces for a large detached, Victorian property in the Cotswolds. The project also involved supplyingfire baskets and 100sq metres of engineered oak floorboards.” PGS
Firstly, N V Design asked Pinckney Green to replicate the design of an original Victorian stone fireplace situated at the end of the large 70sq metre drawing room. This impressive second fireplace was carved in Bath stone to match the serene decor of the room and compliment its classic design and soft cream colour. It helped in adding continuity and grandeur to the look and feel of this elegant room. We also provided 300mm wide, engineered oak floorboards for the Drawing Room and these extra wide boards helped tie together the traditional style of the room.
PGS also carved a Bath stone fireplace for the dining room and office in a more formal style, with strong classical lines, reflecting the traditional style of the rooms built-in wooden book cases. We also lined the fire chamber in limestone, provided a polished steel fire basket, installed a Bath stone hearth as well as performing smoke tests for safety.
“We chose Pinckney Green as we’d worked together previously and I value the professional working relationship we’ve established. I was impressed that PGS had the masonry skills needed to replicate original stone fireplace designs and could provide both the Bath stone fireplaces and extra wide wooden flooring we required within our tight deadlines.” Nadira Van De Grift at NV Design UK Ltd.
