We began manufacturing garden landscaping materials in 1948 when a local doctor requested a Cotswold coloured paving slab to be laid outside his Cotswold Stone house and consulting room in the nearby village of Chipping Campden. After a great deal of searching when no available paving could be found to match, it was decided to manufacture purposemade pavings for the job. These were probably the first ever Cotswold colour pavings slabs to be made out of pre-cast concrete. The slabs were manufactured in small batches in our own yard with a small concrete mixer, batched by hand and using a proprietary colouring agent. The paving slabs were two inches thick,made in a variety of sizes and finished with a trowel to give a natural look. It was after this that some of the doctor's patients, seeing the impressive results, became our first clients. During the late 1940s and the early 1950s our paving slabs were only made and laid to order and these can still be found in everyday use around the Cotswold villages. During the mid 1960s we began to mass produce the Cotswold coloured paving slabs. We were then able to reduce prices and offer an attractive paving slab at a price that most people could afford. In 1969, when it was obvious that the market for paving was expanding,we formed Longborough Concrete Limited. This was about the time that landscaping took off and other manufacturers began to appear in the market-place. Prices became very competitive, and with the advent of modern machinery we are able to offer attractive traditional paving at prices far cheaper than we ever thought possible.Unlike many manufacturers, at Lonstone we have our own on-site moulding facility which allows us to introduce our unique newly-designed products independently as the market continues to grow and evolve. Whereas all of our early sales were in the Cotswolds,we now supply our wide range of quality products through a network of garden centres and builders'merchants.
