My mother wants her existing block paved drive extended to allow for a couple more cars to park. Her existing drive is paved with pavers approx 207mm x 134mm and about 60mm deep (depth less important I guess). I can't seem to find blocks of these dimensions anywhere. Can anyone help?

You really need to slap a photo, or two up for the guys to have a look.
Have you tried the index under block paving types of?start here

Bradstone/Charcon use those plan sizes but we'd definitely need a photie or three to confirm identification.

I'm being a little dumb here perhaps but I'm struggling to get a photo posted here from my mac book pro. If it helps, my brother is convinced they are Marshall's Rialta, but I'm not sure these are still available?

Rialta are long gone (although I saw some particularly well laid ones in Hull last week), and so is the commercial version, the cunningly named Altira.

However, neither Rialta or Altira came in the sizes you quoted. They were 165/140/110 x 110 x 60mm deep with a distinct nipped-in 'waist'.

Send the image to me (tony @ name-of-website) and I'll post it on your behalf.....

Laid some rumbled end of last year they were nowhere near as rounded as that. The finish is also a lot better than those pics I know those are weathered and old but the make up of the blocks isbt as Stoney.

How many meters are there already laid? And us it still in good condition levels wise, so no dips/sunken parts as it could workout cheaper to relay the old and new part with standard blocks

One corner is damaged in the photo, but the rest is relatively as it is meant to be. There is a fair bit of driveway already laid, so it would be a shame not to continue with the same blocks! There is minor dipping in parts but it's not too bad. Thanks for posting the photos!

My ever-so-bloody-useful Brett mini-Bible says Alpah are 140x210, not 133x210.

AFAIK, only Bradstone/Charcon use the 133mm dimension in Britain.
