Last week, Steve and Denise visited the Ampilly quarry in Burgundy, France, to research options for an upcoming project. We were looking for a French limestone flooring that could be supplied in a variety of sizes, thicknesses and surface finishes and could also be cut for steps and wall copings. We had used Ampilly for the terrace at Amarestone HQ (pictured below) so it is a stone that we already knew quite well but this was the first time we had made it out to the quarry.

Fire Damage in Historic Buildings.
Fire in historic houses has hit the headlines a number of times already this year. The most recent being a devastating fire at the National Trust's Clandon Park just this week. We are members of the National Trust and have visited Clandon many times so we are very sorry to hear the news.
