Our Masonry Division (formerly Axtell Perry & Symm - APS) has a history spanning over 200 years and is synonymous with fine stonemasonry. Originally forming part of the Symm Group, in 2016 APS Masonry was acquired by Cotswold Natural Stone Ltd to work alongside their quarried stone business.
Today, renamed as Cotswold Natural Stone Masonry to come within the CNS Group and continue to work closely with Cotswold Natural Stone Ltd to provide a range of quarried stone products, hard landscaping material, stonemasonry products, and reclaimed stone.
Our stonemasons bring years of experience and craftsmanship to the process and we're investing in the younger generation through apprenticeships to keep this traditional, fine art going
Our ‘stock’ stones are Portland stone, which is very popular for London projects, Bath stone, used for many projects in Oxford, and Cotswold and York stone, which is often used for landscaping. We also work regularly with French limestones such as Massangis, Portuguese Moca Creme, and a wide selection of other British and imported stones.
