Porphyry Setts‚ Silver Grey Granite Paving & Kerb & Silver Grey Granite Polished Benches
The Widemarsh Street repaving scheme in Hereford is a major start to making the city’s public realm street scene fit for such an important tourist destination.
Just as it does around the Cathedral‚ Italian porphyry complements the colours of the local sandstone beautifully. Interesting and powerful design using silver grey granite kerb makes the paving design quite striking and individual to this city.
Though a shared surface‚ there is significant vehicular traffic through the street which has been specifically designed to accommodate that in the long term.
