The history of Traditional London Stone Front Steps
London is a wonderful place to live and visit. From the Thames River to the London Bridge, to the wonderful food, London is an exciting and lively city. In addition to the great places to visit and eat, London has a great history of over 2,000 years. That means that there is a lot of history and a lot of older buildings and houses that have rich histories. Part of what makes the older buildings so wonderful is their traditional London stone entrance steps.
The beauty of Traditional London Stone Front Steps
Steps range from grand and steep to short and polished. They mark the entrance to some of the most exciting parts of London. They mark places where some of London’s most proud sons and daughters have passed. From Kings and Queens to The Beatles and beyond, London’s stone front steps have been walked on by royalty and famous people for years. In addition, London stone front steps have seen history unfold. From the middle ages to the World Wars to the Olympics, the steps tell stories of where London has been.
When one sees images of London through the ages, they will see castles, row homes, and majestic public buildings and times when all one can see is where a structure once stood fronted by London stone steps. Yet, there were times when one would pan up with their eyes from the front steps made of Yorkstone and Portland stone to the beautiful building that houses governments and dignitaries. Even more, there are the London stone steps adorning the homes of those who work and live in London. We are proud to be a part of the history of London stone entrance steps.
