|They are a riven effect wet-cast flagstone range in buff colour. There were/are literally hundreds of producers of these throughout the country, ranging from teh big boys like Marshalls and Bradstone down to one-man-bands with a vibrating table, half a dozen moulds, and a tin shed somewhere on a grotty industrial estate.|
Unless someone can identify the moulding detail (maybe Tom from Westminster Stone's dad?), it's practically impossible to identify a particular manufacturer.
I can identify 3 sizes, plus a cuircle kit. The presence of a circle kit suggests it's from one of the better manufacturers. The colour is quite faded, but there is a hint they were originally a two-colour product (light and dark buff or similar), which again points to a better quality producer.
If you are looking for a match to extend or repair, you should bear in mind that even if you succeeed in getting a positive identification, new flags from the same range/manufacturer will not match - they won't be weathered and faded, for a start, so maybe it would be enough to find something sufficiently similar?
Thanks for reply have now decided to lift and replace the flags.
Probably going to stay with a lighter colour, possibly rainbow sanstone
