Product information

The Victorian rope edging (Blenheim) a replica of the clay original edging sourced from Blenheim palace in the UK.   A handmade reconstituted stone product.  The original master used to create this replica Victorian rope edging dates back to circa 1870. This beautiful reproduction edging compliments traditional Victorian tiles used in so many town front paths. The rope is full ( rope on both sides ) and there is no seam along the top.

The dimensions set out below are an exact replica of the original design.

225 mm length, 170 mm high, 35 mm width    

Weight: 2kg each

Colour: Black ( actually more of a grey black ), with a subtle glazed finish

We seal our Victorian rope edging (Blenheim) to give the edging a subtle glazed finish.  In Victorian times edging had a glazed appearance.  They often used locally sourced clay to make the edging, which was then glazed and kiln fired.  A reclamation yard may be able to supply some original clay edgings.  However, the quality is often poor and it is difficult to source the specific quantity to match your requirements.

Design ideas:

Use Decorative edging as a border to help keep the flower beds nice and tidy, or as edging along a winding garden path.  Enhance the look of your driveway and front door path with the use of decorative edging.  Lay the edging in a bed of mortar with approximately a little under half of the height showing proud above the surface edge.  It is possible to avoid using mortar where the ground is firm and by pushing the edging into the ground along the border edge.   However, we would always recommend fixing with a bed of mortar.

The necessity of path edging

Do paths always need edging?  The short answer to this question would be no, however, path edging not only looks good, but it is practical at the same time.  Path edging helps to keep the structure of the path defined and contained.  Without good edging the sides of the path would degrade, borders and weeds would creep in, and the whole path would gradually spread.

Handmade in the UK

Our reconstituted stone products are handmade by us in Oxfordshire, UK, using a mix of aggregates, cement and colouring.  We source the majority of our raw materials locally and ensure they are of the finest quality.  The production process uses traditional techniques of mould casting that have been perfected over the last 70 years.  All our handmade products are frost resistant and are ideal for our UK climate.
