Minsterstone: Modern Website, Traditional Stone Masonry
(Press Release) March 25, 2013 - Somerset, UK - Minsterstone, long known for its work in

website makeover. The new site offers easy navigation, a vast array of beautifully photographed
products such as buildings, fountains, birdbaths, stone paving, and of course the stunning

customer service as well as quality stone products.
Minsterstone's stone items are still hand crafted by trained stone masons. Additionally,
Minsterstone continues to use the generous stores of West County limestone to achieve the
shapes, colors, and textures that mark their products as unique and pleasing to the eye. The
limestone they use has historical as well as aesthetic value. The stores in Portland and Dorset
were used in the restoration of St Paul's after the Fire of London in 1666.
