Letter Carving

At Cumbria Stone Walling, I produce entirely hand-crafted stone letter carving for house signs and a wide variety of other settings. I work with both freshly sawn stone and on weathered stone in situ (for example, on boulders or existing stonework).

Every piece of letter carving is custom made to suit the stone and it’s final setting. This means I can work to provide lettering that is unique to your property.
