Forces of nature formed this rugged corner of the Lake District over 450 million years ago - its legacy today is Honister Green Slate.

Honister Slate Mine is England’s last working slate mine making beautiful modern-day slate products and keeping ancient skills and techniques alive.

Our Honister Green Slate is extracted from the iconic Lake District mountain Fleetwith Pike - just a stone’s throw from our workshops. It is renowned for its olive green hue, quality, longevity and density. 

We make house signs and numbers, dining sets, wine racks, fire hearths, flooring & worktops. We also offer headstones, memorials and t-light holders.
