Antique reclaimed French granite setts
Antique reclaimed French granite setts: This large consignment of classic French granite worn cobblestones comes from Paris’s 19th century Batignolles railway station forecourts and marshalling yards. The huge complex of Batignolles Station in Paris’s 17th arrondissement was re-developed several years ago, releasing successive phases of these excellent setts.
These Truly Reclaimed granite setts are relatively regular and feature the characteristic nuances of grey and beige through to a warmer rosé colour. When wet that colour variation is enhanced.
Well known to be particularly heavyweight, robust and resistant to wear and freezing they can be re-used on traditional landscaping and paving projects and are particularly authentic for 19th century historic properties.
