Dunhouse Buff is a fine grained creamy buff sandstone extracted in the heart of Teesdale.

Dunhouse Buff has proved popular for its blonde colouring, fine grain and consistency, making it ideal for carving and a good match for restoration and new builds in cities such as Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle.

It was the stone used to build Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle (completed in 1892) and the quality of detail still evident today stands as testament to the durability of the stone.

Projects include the restoration of:

  • Durham Cathedral
  • Edinburgh Castle
  • Castle Howard
