BBS Silver Grey Granite and the Cutty Sark Refurbishment

Working with Volker Highways, BBS Natural Stone are proud to supply silver grey granite to the refurbished landscaping of the Cutty Sark Gardens.

Back in 2014, the Queen and Prince Philip officially reopened the 19th century refurbished Cutty Sark at it's dry dock in Greenwich, London.

Carefully chosen kerbs, channels, copings, planters and bespoke seating blocks were delivered along with matching paving in areas directly around the historic ship. Custom made silver grey granite slabs with grooves to reflect the ship’s rigging were laid around a larger planter, each paver was made individually, packed and delivered as a set and laid in exactly the right place so each piece links to the next.

With contrasting silver grey granite banding coursing through the open mix Caithness flagstone paving from A & D Sutherland, owner of the Spittal quarry since 1966, the stone looks fantastic with its mixture of colours where it has oxidised from dark blacks to light browns. BBS has the only supply chain agreement with A & D Sutherland, the country’s largest supplier of Caithness Flagstone Products.
