As part of a complete reordering project, the team at St Mary's required a floor surface that would work well for a multi-use area. The main priority was for a hardwearing floor which would be resilient to the rigours of heavy footfall and movement of chairs and freestanding pews across the surface.
The natural variation in colour and tone of Ancaster was well suited to this project, particularly when it came to tiles for the main open space. Tiles made from Ancaster’s blue/beige layer were used creatively to demarcate changes in levels within the floor and the pure blue layers formed the detailing in the large feature panels and cross. Stone was cut specifically at 30mm to provide additional strength.
