Burlington blue and grey, the original Lancashire slate. In the first 375 years of this world renowned blue/grey slates production, the quarry lay firmly within the palatine county of Lancashire. In 1974, a politicians pen “moved” the quarry to cumbria by re-drawing the county boundaries. For centuries this distinctive slate, in its many guises, has adorned the roofs of many of the country’s most majestic buildings.
