can't find Ron's number. Many builders merchants do ton bags of purbek or other rockery stone. Might be worth asking or looking out the back of covers at cooksbridge

Actually,I found some of the above posts quite helpful as I might do the same. Wouldn't want to be stuck with 'My God' and 'old mayor' on a dessert island. .

Definitely Ron Beck, aka Ron the Rock of Brighton Stone (and ex of the legendary Beck and Daughters building company). A prodigious breeder (with 13 offspring at the last count) and one of the most lovable old rogues you could ever hope to meet. His yard is based behind Sainsburies in Newhaven. If you like rocks you'll love it there. He's there on Saturdays and sporadically throughout the week. Best to ring him first.

Brighton Stone has as all sorts of rock, Sussex sandstone, various types of granite, limestone, York stone, paving and well, just about any stone you could want. All at by far the best prices you'll find anywhere. Delivery too.

Tel: 07803 500294
Brighton Stone
Avis Way
Rich industrial Estate

They don't make them like Ron the Rock anymore (sadly).

Finding good rock dealers in Sussex via internet searches is actually surprisingly hard 'My God' and 'old mayor'.

Tell me "my god" and "old mayor" where it states that users of the site are prohibited from asking questions ?
As you have such vast knowledge of Lewes and the purchasing of rockery; instead of acting like morons perhaps you should reveal your pearls of wisdom to users who are requesting help through the use of this forum instead of being intimidating and patronising w**kers

Lewes is beautiful and I have been considering moving there for a while. I am now thinking of buying a place on Friars... more
