Noble Stonework comprises of siblings Lydia and Bert Noble from Shepley, West Yorkshire where their family have been building with stone for the past 200 years. Many of the notable buildings of the area, such as Shepley School and Cliffe House, are Noble-built. William Noble began work as a stone mason in 1840. He was a true Victorian business man and he and his team built many, many houses in south Yorkshire, he also supplied stone grinding wheels for the Sheffield steel industry. His sons Mathew and Henry followed in his footsteps and produced some of the great Victorian buildings in the local area. Stone work has been passed down the generations of our family and now we uphold the tradition.

Lydia and Bert have been walling since they could walk, and their craft is as much a way of life as it is a job. Having learnt from some of the most respected Master Craftsmen in the business, both are qualified Master Craftsmen with the Dry Stone Walling Association.

They bring this passion, dedication and expertise to every project, be it private or commercial. Lydia and Bert work closely with their clients to produce bespoke work of the highest quality.

Their reputation has taken them all over the world with their work, providing them with a breadth of knowledge to work with a vast range of stone and to create truly exceptional projects
