New Hartham Park Basebed with good weathering properties and shell content

Exciting news at Hartham Park  - we have a new basebed which shows it to be a hard stone with decent shell content.  We've received the initial test data for our new Hartham Park T2 Basebed and the results look really encouraging, especially the freeze thaw data which indicates a durable Bath Stone well suited to projecting masonry courses.
