Welsh Slate

Natural slate from Welsh Slate’s Penrhyn and Cwt-y-Bugail quarries produces the finest roofing slates in the world. Its durability, which sets it apart from other slates, is derived from its density and the geological formation found in that part of North Wales.

Welsh Slate Ltd. is the world’s leading supplier of high-quality slate for a range of exterior and interior design applications. Over 500 million years old, the material is widely recognised as the finest natural slate in the world.

Welsh Slate Ltd. own and operate the famous Penrhyn and Cwt-y-Bugail quarries in North Wales and has been supplying the world with high quality slate for hundreds of years. Penrhyn Quarry has been producing roofing slate since the thirteenth century
and has been the centre and the focal point for UK
natural stone for over 700 years.

In recent decades new sources of roofing slate have come into production from all over the world but none have come close to matching the appearance and performance of Welsh slate.

This blend of quality and aesthetics, as well as the large format sizes available, makes Welsh Slate roofing slate much desired for heritage and prestigious projects including Buckingham Palace, Number 10 Downing Street and St Pancras and King’s Cross Stations.

Welsh Slate roofing material is available in two colours that reflect the true nature of beauty.
These subtle and elegant colours are further complemented by the distinctive natural texture of slate, creating an added dimension to any roof whilst the variety of colours can be used to create a pattern or subtle contrast in a design.

These aesthetic qualities are combined with the material’s natural durability and resistance to weather and temperature, making slate superbly adaptable and ideal for all environments.

As Welsh Slate produces only natural products from the finest raw material each slate has its own unique visual characteristics. Cwt-y-Bugail slate features
natural Blue Grey banding. Penrhyn Quarry slate has natural Heather Blue tonal variations and may include natural green marking.
