The Pooley Bridge Inn, a pub in the Lake District, needed to enhance its aesthetic appeal when seen from the road and village centre, as well as improve the access to the main entrance and an existing beer garden across the pub frontage.

Westminster Stone’s Old Yorkshire Street Flag was chosen, as it would reflect the traditional nature of the pub building, providing a ‘worn’ appearance that looks like it has been in place for several years.

At the same time, it creates a hard-wearing and slip-resistant surface for pedestrians. These were complimented by the Grosvenor Kerbstones and Flagstone Troughs to create a harmonious look across the building frontage.

The project involved

  • removal of the existing overgrown vegetation along the road frontage to open up views into the site from the road and village
  • creation of opening through existing wall and installation of paved path and steps to create a direct link to front entrance from the pavement
  • removal of existing concrete slab paving across beer garden area and replacement with loose gravel surface to create softer finish
  • creation of planting beds with low planting to soften edges and frontage
  • formal planting and topiary in planters to give vertical interest and to soften elevation

Materials used

  • paths and paved alcoves: Old Yorkshire Street Flag
  • front step: Bullnose Step in Old Yorkshire Street
  • kerbs to planting beds: Grosvenor Kerbstones
  • gravel terrace: National Trust Hidcote Shingle
  • troughs: Flagstone Troughs in Old Yorkshire Street
