Dorking is one of the nearest towns to Charlwood, where our granite worktop factory is located. One of the pleasant towns within easy reach of London, Dorking started life as a staging point on the main Roman Road to the port of Chichester – Stane Street. It was the Romans who introduced the breed of chicken which came to be known as the Dorking Fowl – a five clawed variety, amongst Britain’s oldest breeds.

Other claims to fame include the UK’s largest vineyard, at Denbies, and the beauties of Leith Hill and Box Hill and the whole chain of the Surrey Hills. Perhaps more surprisingly, Dorking was also the venue for the recording of Ebony and Ivory, Paul McCartney’s hit with Stevie Wonder.

With a very high standard of older housing stock, and highly desirable newer builds, Dorking has a high demand for granite and quartz kitchen worktops. Right on our doorstep, we are happy to provide. Peter B chose the stunning Emerald Pearl granite for his kitchen. He wrote to us after the installation:

“Thank you for an excellent installation. Your team delivered and installed the granite for our Dorking house last week and I am writing to congratulate your installation team on an outstanding professional job. The three large pieces were quite complex with the hole for the domino hob being cut on site to avoid the risk of cracking in transit. They dealt with a number of problems, no drama just quiet professionalism and worked well with the other trades on site. Please pass on my thanks to the team.”
