Mixed sizes and colours give an attractive natural effect as seen in the photo top left, while uniform sizes and colours give an ordered, planned effect. It also makes excellent garden paving stones and is perfect for features like paving circles.

What is riven paving?

Riven slabs are split from large sandstone blocks which come from sedimentary layers or 'beds'. They are 'riven' or split along the layer with a hammer and fire-sharpened chisel, a traditional method which has been used for centuries. This gives them a natural uneven surface which is preserved in the finished paving flags.
