The reason is simple…

You’ll find we’re nothing like other cast stone manufacturers. As a family-owned business established for over 15 years, we’re free to focus on the quality of our cast stone products, without the costs of fancy showrooms and salespeople that bump up others’ costs. It’s what makes Acanthus cast stone products so surprisingly affordable.

Superior hand-made quality in every cast stone product

Everything we make is completely hand-made. In fact, the only mechanised element in our production process is our mixing machine. Our experienced joinery team make our cast stone moulds by hand. Our casters pack this mould by hand. Then each and every product is finished by hand.

After two weeks curing, and only after two weeks curing, are our products ready for collection or delivery.

Locally sourced materials ensure consistent quality

The vast majority of our materials are sourced locally, like the sand that we use, and the crushed limestone. The only thing we import from outside our local area is the white or grey cement that goes into each of our cast stone products.

Naturally, all the items we supply are completely frost-proof and far exceed the performance requirements of BS1217, the UKCSA Specification for Cast Stone, and NBS clause F22.

Govt grant available to Self-builders
