Chilstone Architectural Stone & Garden Ornaments

With over 60 years of experience, Chilstone hand finish Cast Stone products for architectural building products and garden ornaments for professionals and consumers in the UK and abroad. Using moulds to create our stonework, we have the flexibility to create a diverse range of quality products to order, that look and weather like quarried stone, at a more competitive price. From new build components with reinforced supports to restoration projects, we have an experienced team of estimators who produce CAD drawings and work with your architectural and building teams. We also provide stone temples for wedding venues, fountains for driveways and gardens or distinction and a large range of planters, urns and statues.

Our show gardens at Langton Green, near Tunbridge Wells were opened by Alan Titchmarsh in 1997 and are open to the public all year. Chilstone ornaments have featured in Gold, Silver, Silver-Gilt, Bronze and People's Choice award winning gardens at the world renowned RHS Chelsea Flower Show and can be seen in fine gardens, stately homes and national collections.
