Slates in the Lakes: 25 Years of Vermont Structural Slate and the Lake District National Park

Special slate in a special location!

United Slates Ltd is extremely lucky to have it’s head office in the beautiful Lake District. For the past 25 years, naturally-sensational Vermont Structural Slate has been supplied to equally stunning Lake District properties. We are very proud of our special connection with the Lake District and Lakes planning authorities. To celebrate the launch of our new website, United Slates has looked back at some of our Lake District projects…

In the featured 2008 Lakes project, a discerning customer renovating an exclusive and prominent property in the middle of Bowness-on-Windermere asked us to provide an alternative to a prohibitively expensive local Green slate. Our Vermont Structural Unfading Green 20-12″ Diminishing Course x Random Width proved to be the perfect choice for our customer as a naturally beautiful and quality product.

Following discussions with the Lake District Planning Authority our customer placed his order and we delivered the slate to site pre-sized by crate from our UK stock a few days later.

If you would also like to use any of our slates or require assistance designing and planning your property, please call for a fast, friendly and enthusiastic service.
