Limpley Stoke is situated in the Avon valley, between the Georgian city of Bath and Freshford village. This beautiful parish in Bradford, Wiltshire sits in charming countryside above the river Avon, the Kennet and Avon canal and the Great Western Railway.  

A property being built by Ken Biggs required surfacing for a straight driveway and pathway that led around the front and side of the house to the back garden.

As you travel through this picturesque village you notice that many other properties have loose gravel on their front drives, most of which has gravitated onto the road.   

Keeping a gravel drive looking tidy is time consuming, not to mention hard work!   

Another downside is that loose stone makes the surface inaccessible to bikes, wheelchairs and pushchairs; it’s even a struggle to put your wheelie bin out.  

A friend, and landscape designer, of the owner suggested using SureSet; having used it previously herself and being impressed with its look and smooth, permeable finish.  

This project moved very quickly; the order was placed in May, and in June four of our Installation Team laid 103m² of 6mm Barley Beach at a depth of 16mm on an asphalt base.

Both the builder and the home owner are delighted with the finished SureSet surface.  

SureSet has delivered practically maintenance free resin bound paving; no loose stone to migrate into the road, onto the lawn or get walked into the house, no weeds and because surface water drains back through to the natural water table, no puddles.  

The overall finish of this property is stunning; Barley Beach perfectly complements the stone used in the building of this pretty property.
