Durability Guaranteed - Pulhamite Rockwork - Its conservation and repair, published by Historic England in 2008, defines Coade stone as: ‘A type of stoneware made from clay, crushed flint, soda glass and other materials, fired slowly over several days to produce a very durable artificial stone with a hard surface finish. It was used in the 18th and early 19th centuries for monuments and other objects. A related material was the terracotta-like artificial stone developed in the 19th century by the Pulhams for cast ornamentation and decoration.’
